Say you are trying to put whatever is in the stock field into page 2. Use PHP (so either name the page .php and run it on a PHP compatible server or configure your server to parse .html as PHP), and you would then just do something like:

<input type="text" value="<?php echo $_POST['stock']; ?>" />

in page 2. Of course, change $_POST to $_GET if your form method is get, but otherwise, that is the general gist.

Well, the code snippet I gave was the example. Are you using PHP at all?

When the user submits your form in index, it should have its action set to page 2. It will pass the form variables in the $_POST or $_GET array (depending on your form method), and you can access them in page 2 that way.

This means in page 2, anywhere in your HTML code (in this case inside the value attribute of your text field), you can insert <?php echo $_POST['NAME']; ?> where you replace NAME with the name of the form field in index that you want to copy.
