Dear Experts...

I have a Form1 - [Topic Information] with a list box that contains 3 columns:
1) the Contract_ID (hidden)
2)the Contract_Number
3)the SBIR_Phase

What I want to do, is select a value from my list box - "lst_Contract_Number" and open up a "Contract Details" page  by passing it the hidden Contract_ID field from the [Topic Information] page. This is what I have so far. I am a ENTRY LEVEL programmer, so please make any expanation Barney Style! :-)

Thanks in advance

 sql = "SELECT [Contract Information].[Contract Number],[Contract Information].SBIR_Phase,[Contract Information].Contract_ID,"
 sql = sql & " Funding_Details.Contract_ID from [Contract Information] RIGHT JOIN Funding_Details on Funding_Details.Contract_ID = [Contract Information].Contract_ID"
 sql = sql & " Where [Contract Information].Contract_ID = lst_Contract_Number.Column(1, 1)"

c#, asp.net c#
http://www.codeproject.com/useritems/pass_data_between_forms.asp

http://msdn2.microsoft.com/en-US/library/ms171925.aspx

I for one mainly develop in c# now, c++ before.  So I usually

create a "get, set" function in the form I want to pass the data.

Form 1:
<before the open new form function>

string myString = "2";
Form2 myForm2 = new Form2();
myForm2.form2MyString = myString;
myForm2.Open();


Form 2:

private string strForm2MyString;
public form2MyString
{
     get
     {
          return strForm2MyString;
     }
     set
     {
          strForm2MyString = value;
     }
}


Now I can use "strForm2MyString" anywhere in Form2 when I need that value.

Hope this helps.

I figured it out with the help of a colleague here. This is what I got to pass the value over to the next page, a variable, tmpcol:

   If Len(Nz(Me![lst_Contract_Number].ItemData(Me![lst_Contract_Number].ListIndex + 1))) > 0 Then
            tmpCol = Me![lst_Contract_Number].ItemData(Me![lst_Contract_Number].ListIndex + 1)

And then this is my WHERE clause: WHERE [Contract Information].Contract_ID = " & Me.OpenArgs

Thanks for all your help T3Logic!
