Hi, i am trying to do a http post, i have tested all my data and query database outputs and they all work fine. i am trying to get another system to import my order. all i have to do is sent it like so, so i was told.....

http://www.domain.co.uk?MMID=123456862&VendorTxCode=54584684&delTotal=1.70&CartTax=2.53&address1=123 Test Street&address2=&address3=&name=Mr Test2 &shipName=&company=&shipCompany=&shipAddress1=&shipAddress2=&shipAddress3=&city=Rockville&shipCity=&shipCounty=&shipPostCode=&country=USA&shipCountry=&email=testing2x@mediamount.co.uk&password=pass&subtotal=12.75&delTotal=1.70&county=MD&CartItems=Test Product:5:2.55:0.1:98&fax=&mobile=&Currency=Pound&post_code=20850&Amount=16.98&paymenttype=paypal&tel=301-762-1410&ClientIPAddress=69.138.182.65&timedate=20/10/2006 19:44:52&


so my post is like so (all data is correct and is pulling from the database on my side fine)...


<cfhttp method="Post" url="http://www.domain.co.uk/>
<cfhttpparam type="Formfield" value="#CartItems#" name="CartItems">

<cfhttpparam type="Formfield" value="123456862" name="MMID">
<cfhttpparam type="Formfield" value="#SESSION.protx.VendorTxCode#" name="order_id">

<cfloop query="customerTb">

<cfhttpparam type="Formfield" value="#ip#" name="ClientIPAddress">
      <cfhttpparam type="Formfield" value="#timedate#" name="timedate">
      <cfhttpparam type="Formfield" value="#paymenttype#" name="paymenttype">
      <cfhttpparam type="Formfield" value="#subtotal#" name="subtotal">
      <cfhttpparam type="Formfield" value="#delTotal#" name="delTotal">
      <cfhttpparam type="Formfield" value="#tax#" name="CartTax">


etc.

but all i get on there side is:



File Content:
Could not import data because no data or MMID

Microsoft VBScript runtime error '800a01f9'

Invalid or unqualified reference
Mime Type: text/html



anyone know why, does http work this way?

It looks like you're using POST, but the other site is expecting a GET - try changing that and see if it helps.
