I have a list of static HTML that contains a list of users.  What I need to do is hyperlink each name and pass a string to a new page that will display user details.  On the Hyperlinks I have set a datanavigation url that has the query string /details.aspx?cn=tom but on the details page I'm not sure how to get that string.  

I know I need to access request.querystring but what is the easiest way to do that without having to put in a static entry for each user.  Can I just somehow access the variable part of the DataNavigationURL - (ie - tom)

BTW - I am using vb.net and asp 2.0
