trouble with search box

I'm trying to make a search function for my database. Right now I'm working on a very simple version where the user inputs  a number into a form and the results page is supposed to show the same numebr from the form. For some reason the results page will only display the default number no matter what I input into the search form. Here is the code for my recordset and the two pages. Can someone help me figure out what I'm doing wrong?

Recordset (on results page) <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

SELECT ID, item, store, address, description
FROM shoppinglist
WHERE ID = MMColParam

name                 default value                run-time value
MMColParam           1                       Request.QueryString("searchtest")


search page code <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

<%@LANGUAGE="VBSCRIPT" CODEPAGE="1252"%>

  rssearchtest__MMColParam = Request.QueryString("searchtest")

Hi  elliottbenzle,
try this for your form:

<%@LANGUAGE="VBSCRIPT" CODEPAGE="1252"%>
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd">
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" />
<title>Untitled Document</title>
</head>

<body>
<form id="searchtest" name="searchtest" method="post" action="results.asp">
  <label>
  Search
  <input type="text" name="searchtest" />
  </label>
  <label>
  <input type="submit" name="Submit" value="Submit" />
  </label>
</form>
</body>
</html>

You need to give your text field the name searchtest
  <input type="text" name="searchtest" />

Thanks
