there is just a spelling mistake in ur code. Use the following line

PrevSite=Request.ServerVariables("HTTP_REFFERRER")


Hope this helps

Ok, change the spelling but I still get PrevSite=""

<%
PrevSite= Request.ServerVariables("HTTP_REFFERRER")
%>

Request.ServerVariables("HTTP_REFFERRER") will only give you a value if someone arrived at that page via a hyperlink. Otherwise, you will get an empty string.

To see all values, try:

for objItem in Request.ServerVariables
  response.write(objItem & ": " & request.servervariables(objItem) & "<br>")
next

say your above lines of code is in a page on ur website called http://mysite/test.asp then for testing what u need to do is first visit some other site and in the same browser then go to your test page, I hope you didnt test the code by launching the new browser window and executing your page because then prevsite will be emtpy.

Copy-paste from MSDN... The correct spelling is:
HTTP_REFERER
