We are sending out a group of emails that will have an id attached
ie   3453abc56, which will be our reference for this customer.
so we send an email which has a link on the page  abc.com/testdata.html?tpages=3453abc56
as an example, what is the best way to store id into the site, so that were ever page they go to we would be able to use this value for a questionare that we have attached on the site and would allow us to identify the client
and how would you do it please

Hi, Garry.  Weather is beautiful here at this time of year and in Washington we have a good high-tech business climate (can't say as much for the rest of the USA).  But thanks for the points and good luck with the project!  All the best, ~Ray
