Sending querystring values IE7

I am simply trying to send and recieve a querystring. I'm using IE7 and this is the URL of the local html page i am using....

C:\Documents and Settings\............\Website\Overview.html?m=n73

however, when i try and open this page in IE7, it claims that 'windows cannot find' the path and i should check the path.

Should the Overview.html page not open, it only has a query value on the end??  If i remove the query string value, it opens fine....

Have i mis-written something????

Any help would be great, thanks

Phil

URL with queryString works when the form or URL is submitted to a webserver. And moreover, the URL should contain a target that can process the request (like JSP, ASP or Servlet) , not HTMLs.
So you have to strip your URL off the trailing "?m=n73" to enable IE7 locate the page.

but im simply gonna be using javascript to read back the value? i thought this is how to send values between pages on client-side???

if not, is there any other way to use client-side scripting to gain variables between pages?

Thanks, Phil

Jaax: .html?bla=x is perfectly ok when served from a webserver.
In js, you will look at location.search - for example like this:
var passed = location.search;
if (passed) passed = passed.substring(1); // loose the ?
