set the values clientid and jobid in a hidden value in your form. then when you submit the form it would still be available to you for use.

$hidden1 = $_POST[clientid];
$hidden2 = $_POST[jobid];

depending what you mean by saving the page.
You must use a form, but are you using POST or GET?

You need to keep forwaring the hidden values to the next pages.
for ex:
in ur first page from ur query sting you've assigned the two values to a hidden fiedld clientid and jobid.
now when you submit this page the on the second page you can refer to this value as
$hidden1 = $_POST[clientid];
$hidden2 = $_POST[jobid];
now if you are submitting this page agin then like in the first page you need to have the values of $hidden1 and $hidden2 carried forward .

it seems to me that the code is there to store keep the value of the hidden field once they are set.
* However, I'm not too sure if the a field is ever set properly

function SelectPeople(peopleid)
 {
      searchstring=document.artinfo.hidefetch.value;
      document.artinfo.hidpeopleid.value=peopleid;
      document.artinfo.hidcontactperson.value= surname;
           
      document.artinfo.submit();
      return true;
 }

I reckon the hidcontactperson is never set because surname is not set anywhere in this function

* I'm not too sure if this code is helping as well

////////////////CONTACT PERSON///////////////////////////////
print "<table width=95% border='0' cellpadding=$maintablecellpadding cellspacing=$maintablecellspacing>";
print "<tr>";
print "<td width='25%' name=hidcontactperson align=left id='contperson'>";

the td tag has a name identical to the name of your hidden field

* Also you set a number of javascript variable commun_.... and after you reuse them in php as $commun_...
In my mind, javascript is client side and php is server side, therefore this variable can not be used in the same context.

I'm concern that all these issues nneds to be addressed if you want to make sure that everything works as you expect!

Cheers,

Alain

sorry as i dont've php installed on this machine i cant be of much help.
Have a look at http://www.codehelp.co.uk/php/form.php#form
in the above example it shows how to read either from a querystring is present or the hidden value depending on what is set.
taht might be of use to you.
and @alain34 has raised some very good points..

lwordAuthor Commented:
hai alain34,

This function sets the contactperson value and also all the values inside the selectpeople function.
while saving the savefunction is called and hidsave is set to save,after i print the clientid and jobid then the values are become nothing.
how to retain these values at this stage?
plz................

alain34Commented:
I understand your problem, however your code has prior issues to be solved.
first of all, you should change the selectPeople function to add the 'surname' argument.
you should change the td name with hidcontactperson.
Could you explain to all EE with some variable set in javascript are expected to be used in php?

send those two values to sessions variables to be retrieved at a later time
