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:

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

Does anyone know how to do this please?

    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.
