I am trying to pass a variable to another page by putting it into a textbox and posting the info to the next page.

The variable vbchoice is a string which happens to be made up of all numbers in this case.  A sample is 0359001.  The webpage is getting 359001 instead if all six characters.  How to I declare this variable as a string so that I don't lose the leading zero?

Thanks a lot,

Hree's the code to submit the page:
<script language="javascript">
function ChooseView(vbchoice)
     document.form1.action ="project_tasks.cfm?choice=3"; ="main";

Here's the link to sumbit the page:
<A href="##" onclick="ChooseView(#prProject#);return false;" class=link2>#Mid(prProject,2,4)#.#Right(prProject,2)# #Left(Project_Name,13)#</a>
