Only echo does that automatically.
Value='.$value

Try something like this:
$value = 123;
$whereto = "index.php?" . $value;
header("Location: " . $whereto);

I think if you use double-quotes instead of single-quotes, the $value would be expanded.

header( "Location: index.php?value=$value") ;

Open in new window

sjklein42 is right "$value" is evaluated in double quotes ... '$value' is passed on literally.
