"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Depends on the situation, you can either use the querystring, crosspage posting, or session/application variables. Look at the following link for some more explanation and samples:

There are several ways to pass values between pages:

1. Session (per user)
2. Post values to the new page (per request)
3. Use Application Cache (per application - shared between all users)

see this link ... lists all the possibilities


NB: Cannot say the best method unless you tell your scenario
