Why does the Web Part Connection not work?

I have created a Web Part Connection to display data from an SQL database when a certain row of a Sharepoint list is selected. This works perfectly when the two Web Parts involved reside on the same page. However it never works when the two Web Parts are on different pages within the same site.
The web part connection wizard works perfectly in both cases ie no errors. However when you go back in to modify the created connection it always says the target web part is unavailable and the target action is unavailable...although if you step through the wizard again all the steps work apparently correctly.
Can anyone offer a suggestion on this most frustrating problem.
