How to save HTML after Redirect into variable

Hello family,
I have a classic ASP application that redirects from one page to another. A.asp > B.asp
The code within the A.asp page is Response.Redirect("B.asp").
My question is how do I dump ONLY the HTML markup used to create A.asp into B.asp. Basically, I want to capture the HTML into a variable within B.asp so I can later recreate the A.asp page at a later time.

For example, I want to be able to use Response.Write() to recreate the A.asp page.
Below is code inside B.asp page

*******
Dim varPageA as String

Set varPageA = "HTML content from A.asp"

Response.Write(varPageA)

*******

Thanks and don't forget to vote Nov 4th!

you need to use a session variable.

So Set Session("HTMLContent") = varPageA

then you can read it as Set varPageA = Session("HTMLContent")

Thanks, but I need to know how to derive the output for varPageA using using the HTTPRequest object. I only used varPageA for purposes of brevity and illustration. The only thing I know is that it has to eventually be of String type.

So on page B use the code below, it will call page A and save it as Session("PAGEA")

Then later you can response.write(Session("PAGE")) to redisplay the page.
URL="http://yourwebsite/pagea.asp"
	Set objXMLHTTP = Server.CreateObject("Microsoft.XMLHTTP")
	objXMLHTTP.Open "GET", URL, false
	objXMLHTTP.Send
	ReturnedData=objXMLHTTP.responseText
	Set objXMLHTTP = Nothing
	Session("PAGEA")=ReturnedData

Open in new window

Try re-registering the MSXML3.DLL on your server.

Click Start.
Choose Run.
In the Run box, type:

I tried both suggestion but to no avail.

Family, I think the issue is that the SEND command doesn't like it when I try to access an asp page from within my project (or the same web server). The above-code works fine when I point to a url from a remote server (i.e. "http://www.google.com/"). When I try to use it to access a page in my own web server, it complains. Hope this helps.

Using HTTPRequests to the Same Server is not recommended
