I am trying to get the values of my query string so that I can repopulate the page with the information that I originally saved from the page.  This query string was passed by Javascript so I don't know how to get the values out of it.  the first is my query string, the first value is the date, then the  (tf=36) and then the Uic=PUPAA.  I need to get these 3 values to pass to an sql statement to pull data to repopulate my page.  

http://ngmnc2-j6ops-a5/SADDotNet1/Documents/AttendanceForm.aspx?dt=24%20Jun%202008&tf=36&uic=PUPAA

This is the javascript that passed the values to the querystring to get to other page.
<script language="javascript">function showForm(theDate) {theTF = document.Form1.ddlTaskForce.value; theUIC = document.Form1.DDLUIC.value;
window.location.replace("AttendanceForm.aspx?dt=" + theDate + "&tf=" + theTF + "&uic=" + theUIC);
            }                              
</script>

Hello kdeutsch,

In your page_load event simply assign the relevant values:

DDLUIC.Text = Request.QueryString("uic")
ddlTaskForce.SelectedValue = Request.QueryString("tf")

For example.

Ok here is what I have so far.

 Dim id As String

        id = Request.QueryString("ID")

        If id = "" Then
            Response.Redirect("Attendanceform.aspx")
            Response.End()
        End If

        sql = "select strUic from tblUIC where strUIC = " & id
        Response.Write(sql)
        Response.End()

It locks up on me at this point,  I thought I needed to pas the value to the sql string some how.
