Hi blerman456,

I can't see in the attached what you are trying to do.  

However, the usual way to pass parameters is through form posts or through the query string.  Assuming you don't want to do any server side processing, the query string is the best choice:

<a href="somepage.html?somevariable=somevalue">Go to the next page</a>

The information after the ? in the URL becomes available to scripts on the landing page.

How do I change the variable to another value in the next page?  Also, the file I attached is a Word file, so you should be able to see it.  Can you try to open it in Word?

>> so you should be able to see it.

I can't tell from your code or your description what you are trying to do.  The attached is just a basic web page with links.

>> How do I change the variable to another value in the next page

Use server side scripting to process the variable.  For instance, using PHP:

if ($_GET['somevariable'] === "somevalue") {
     $somevariable = "someother value";
