How to Dynamically Build Another Web Page From Another ASP.NET/C# ASPX page

I have successfully built a website that allows users to query a database and a series of ten values are returned from selection criteria that a user has entered. I am now attempting to write the line of values that are in a dataset within C# that has successfully queried the database table. (The results can contain thousands of results, and all of the results need to be displayed in a table format on another web page.)

I am new to C# and ASP.NET, and I was wondering if someone could point me in the right direction of how to take the data that I have on one page and dynamically build another aspx page, which will have its own controls on it, in a table format. Thank you to anyone in advance that can help me find direction with my current web page project.

(For simplicity, say that I used table1 and pulled back values a, b, c, d, e, f, g, h, i, j, k. How can I get the values in table1 being returned in the dataset to display in a table on a webpage called results.aspx from an original aspx page called default.aspx.)

Try saving you dataset result into the session object.
Session["MyCommonDataset"] = your_dataset_ instance_ here.
Then use the same session on both pages to build the contents.

Hi,

why don't you get results of the query on the second page?

For example:
1)On page1.aspx users fill their selection criteria and click on submit button. The form on page1.aspx will have action set to page2.aspx and method post.
2)On page2.aspx get select criteria by Request.Form, do database query database to select data and view data as you need.
