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

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