you have several options:
* session data
* url parameters
* post data
* database contents

the easiest is the url, but it shows the user how to call the page, actually.
post data is similar to the url, also very easy, but can also be "spoofed"
the most secure is session data, and you save the parameter in the session, and then call (redirect) to the search page, which then uses the session data
saving the parameters in a database table, along with the session id, and then in the search page query for the search parameters first, or letting the query use the parameter values stored, is the "heaviest", but has some other advantages...

Angel is right....I would use session variables.

On one page you would put something like:
session("MyFirstValue") = 12345

And then on every other page you can reference the session variable like any regular variable.
Str = "Select * from tblTable where Field = " & Session("MyFirstValue")
