Thank you MYfox.

Can you help me how to do this?

Lets say i have a include page in the middle of the webpage and it is already pointing to default.aspx?pageid=1

Now if you click on a link that then displays default.aspx?pageid=1&mysite=me&do=uk

Thanks

You might want to consider an ajax solution:

<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Strict//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-strict.dtd">
<html>
<head>
<title>http://www.experts-exchange.com/Programming/Languages/Scripting/JavaScript/Q_26821974.html</title>
<script src="http://ajax.googleapis.com/ajax/libs/jquery/1.4.4/jquery.min.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
<script type="text/javascript">

jQuery(document).ready( function () {

  $(".dynamic").click( getContent );

});

function getContent( event ) {
  event.preventDefault();
  $("#dynamic-content").load( $(this).attr( "href" ) );
}

</script>

<style>
#dynamic-content { width: 640px; height: 400px; border: 1px dotted #f00; margin-left: auto; margin-right: auto; overflow: scroll; background-color: beige; }
</style>

</head>
<body>

<a href="http://www.whatcar.com/Valuation/SelectMake?makeId=4708" class="dynamic">Alfa Romeo</a> |
<a href="http://www.whatcar.com/valuation/SelectMake?makeId=5202" class="dynamic">Aston Martin</a> |

<div id="dynamic-content"></div>

</body>

Hi everyone.

I have been trying to get it to work with very little luck, so spent more time researching and come up with a solution from w3schools, however, i have changed the code but still can not get it to work.

I have my file in asp.net, if quesrystring = me, me1 or me2 then i should display something

If Request.QueryString("q") = "me" Then
            Response.Write("Number 1 selected")
        ElseIf Request.QueryString("q") = "me1" Then
            Response.Write("Number 2 selected")
        ElseIf Request.QueryString("q") = "m2" Then
            Response.Write("Number 3 selected")
        Else
            Response.Write("Nothing selected")
        End If

On the page that this will be displayed i have

<script type="text/javascript">
function showCustomer(str)
{
var xmlhttp;    
if (str=="")
  {
  document.getElementById("txtHint").innerHTML="";
  return;
  }
if (window.XMLHttpRequest)
  {// code for IE7+, Firefox, Chrome, Opera, Safari
  xmlhttp=new XMLHttpRequest();
  }
else
  {// code for IE6, IE5
  xmlhttp=new ActiveXObject("Microsoft.XMLHTTP");
  }
xmlhttp.onreadystatechange=function()
  {
  if (xmlhttp.readyState==4 && xmlhttp.status==200)
    {
    document.getElementById("txtHint").innerHTML=xmlhttp.responseText;
   
    }
  }
xmlhttp.open("get","menu.aspx?q="+str,true);
    xmlhttp.send();
//
}
</script>

Within the boty i have

<div id="txtHint">Customer info will be listed here...</div>
                <a href="javascript:showCustomer('me')"> 1</a>

However it still does not go of and bring the data back.

Please can anyone help me.

Thank you all, but i now have it working and bring the information accross.

Basically, the above worked, but i was trying to bring accross an entire page and not just the code itself.
