using a session to pass a value from one page to another

I have a private admin section and one of the pages the user can view a load of outstanding jobs and for each one click a link to view more on that job.

This then re-directs them to a page where they see the additional data.

I don't want the user to see any id's in the querystring so I'm wondering is there anything inherently wrong with putting the id into a session variable, re-direct to the other page and then pull it out of session and destroy the session variable.

Any input appreciated.

Yes, you can certainly use Session variables to pass information between pages.
