Pass parameters to a SharePoint 2003 form through query string

Hi experts,

I want to pass a parameter to a SPS 2003 form via the query string, and have the appropiate field in the form take on it's value.

For example:
https://sharepoint/lists/NewForm.asp?Description=Test

Would populate the "Description" field on the form with the word "Test".

Does anyone know how to do this please?

Thanks,
Martin

here's how you do it in wss 3.0.  not sure if it works in the older version of sharepoint.

Yeah seen various instructions for WSS3 but do need a MOSS 2003 solution unfortunately.

Not possible.  Sharepoint 2003 *owns* the query string parameters and will strip them off.
