I have written a C# .Net web site using visual studio 2008. I have two pages, each containing a asp.net 3.5 listview control bound to a linqdatasorce. All I want to do is pass a variable from one listview to the other through the query string, is this possible?

There are two way to do this.
When ever you want to go to next page form the querysring something like this.
Response.redirect ("../page2.aspx?param1="+listviewcontrol.selectedvalue;
In the other page
listview2.selectedvalue=Request.Querystring["param"].toString();

Or
Put the value in a Session. So Session["myval"]=istviewcontrol.selectedvalue;
in page 2
listview2.selectedvalue=Session["myval"].tostring();

Make sure in either cases check for null conditions

Using your first approach, on the second listview upon using my version of:

listview2.selectedvalue=Request.Querystring["param"].toString();

I get the error: cannot be assigned to, it is read only?

...and I was entering the code within my LinqDataSources OnSelecting event.

This solution is as simple as:

<asp:HyperLink runat="server" id="hlNavigate" NavigateUrl='<%#  "~/trustAccounts.aspx?Id=" + Eval("TrustID") %>' Text="Accounts" />
