Hello,

I've been searching how to pass multiple variables with a response.redirect for a little to long now and need some help.

I've tried this method
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Q_21248972.html?query=passing+multiple+variables+with+response.redirect&clearTAFilter=true

First let me start by explaining my madness

i have a form that "posts" the info to a page that checks against the dB for if it exists, then to either displaying the dB records or a page that informs the user the records exists and a button back to the form. On that page I want to be able to write the variables i'm passing, however i do a response.write on the query string of DateID and it will display that one but only that one if the "&" are next to the field name in the redirect as below

Response.redirect "add_projres_no.asp?DateID=" & ResDay & "&TimeID=" & ResTime & "&RoomID=" & ResRoom
output of request.querystring = 81

If i remove the "&" and the redirect is as below
Response.redirect "add_projres_no.asp?DateID=" & ResDay & "TimeID=" & ResTime & "RoomID=" & ResRoom
output of request.querystring = 81TimeID=16RoomID=12

thosrmann,

I am not positive I understand your question but Request.Querystring will only provide the variable you specify after that command.  For example in the querystring you had in the first code you would need to use the following line to get all of the variables in the string.

Request.Querystring("DateID")
Request.Querystring("TimeID")
Request.Querystring("RoomID")

One request would not work.  As you found in the second example if you leave out the ampersand (& sign) in the string then all of the information is treated as the value of DateID.  The ampersand is used to separate name/value pairs in the string.  For example,

?name1=value1&name2=value2&name3=value3

Let me know if you have any questions.  I think your problem will be solved by making the additional requests for the other "variables" in the string.  If you need more information or I misunderstood the problem just let me know how I can help.
