Am trying to post a merchant # but don't want it to be viewable in the source, so I am attempting to gather the data that was posted by the user, add the merchant #, and generate a post header to send the values to the merchant site.  I want the user to be taken to the merchant site as if the original form they submitted was submitting directly to it.
so basically, form A with values name=john & total=10 would be submited to page B where both name & day as well as a new value, merchant=123, would be automaticaly posted to page C.
Any ideas?

'***index.asp
<html>
<head>
<script LANGUAGE="javaScript">
<!--

function frmLogin_onSubmit() {
if (form1.name.value == "" || form1.total.value == "")
return false;
}

//-->
</script>
</head>
<body>
<form name="form1" method="post" action="processInfo.asp">
<iput type="text" name="name">
<iput type="text" name="total">
<input type="submit" name="submit1" value="Submit">
</form>
</body>
</html>

'***processInfo.asp
<%
Response.Buffer = true
for each obj in Request.Form
      with response
            .Write "<input type=""hidden"" name=""" & obj & """ value=""" & Request.Form.Item(obj) & """>" & vbcrlf

Hi,

If you want to do it in php, this is how I had to do it for my bank (BOA). It constructs a post header and submits it to the bank's receiveing form. The cool thing is that you can launch this from anywhere -- not just from the url approved by your bank.  You can subsitute the $formdata into what you need to send to the form:

                ///////////////////////////
                //send info to the bank
                ////////////////////////////
               
                //host info
                $host = "--YOUR BANK'S URL--";
                $port = 80;
                $path = "--PATH TO YOUR BANK'S FORM--";
               
                //create the array of form fields
                $formdata = array(  "ioc_merchant_id" => "--YOUR MERCHANT ID--",
                                    "ioc_order_total_amount" => $transTotal,
                                    "ioc_auto_settle_flag" => "Y",
                                    "ecom_billto_postal_name_first" => $firstname,
                                    "ecom_billto_postal_name_last" => $lastname,
                                    "ecom_billto_postal_street_line1" => $AddressLine1,
                                    "ecom_billto_postal_city" => $city,
                                    "ecom_billto_postal_stateprov" => $state,
                                    "ecom_billto_postal_postalcode" => $zipcode,
                                    "ecom_billto_postal_countrycode" => "US",
                                    "ecom_billto_online_email" => $email,
                                    "ecom_payment_card_name" => $cardHolderName,
                                    "ecom_payment_card_number" => $cardnumber,
                                    "ecom_payment_card_expdate_month" => $expMonth,
                                    "ecom_payment_card_expdate_year" => $expYear);
               
                //generate the post string
                foreach($formdata AS $key => $val)
                {
                    $poststring .= urlencode($key)."=".urlencode($val)."&";
                }
                //get rid of the last ampersand
                $poststring = substr($poststring, 0, -1);
               
                //open a socket
                $fp = fsockopen($host, 80, $errno, $errstr, 30);
               
                //check for error
                if(!$fp)
                {
                       print"SOCKET ERROR: $errstr ( $errno )<br>\n";
                }
                else
                {
                    fputs($fp, "POST $path HTTP/1.1\r\n");
                    fputs($fp, "Host: $host\r\n");
                    fputs($fp, "Referer: --THE URL THAT YOUR BANK APPROVED FOR TRANSACTIONS--");
                    fputs($fp, "Content-type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded\r\n");
                    fputs($fp, "Content-length: ".strlen($poststring)."\r\n");
                    fputs($fp, "Connection: close\r\n\r\n");
                    fputs($fp, $poststring."\r\n\r\n");
                   
                    //loop through the response
                    if($debug) { print" getting response...<br>\n"; }
                    while(!feof($fp))
                    {
                        print fgets($fp, 4096);
                        print"<br>\n";
                    }
                   
                    //close the socket
                    fclose($fp);
                }

Hope that helps
