Strip off old header information

I am working in php/mysql.  I am calling a page with some additional information in the header.  it looks something like this:

www.mysite.com/mypage.php?Series=CRY140-1

on this page I am doing an insert, and a redirect.

 $theRN = mysql_insert_id();
 $insertGoTo = "store.php?crn=0&rn=$theRN&action=show_detail";

if (isset($_SERVER['QUERY_STRING'])) {
    $insertGoTo .= (strpos($insertGoTo, '?')) ? "&" : "?";
    $insertGoTo .= $_SERVER['QUERY_STRING'];
  }
  header(sprintf("Location: %s", $insertGoTo));
exit();
}

The header is showing as
www.mysite.com/store.php?crn=0&rn=77857845&action=show_detail&Series=CRY140-1

It seems to have carried over the  "Series=CRY140-1".

It does it in ie and firefox.

How do I strip this off?

Don't add it back.  This line:

$insertGoTo .= $_SERVER['QUERY_STRING'];

is adding the original query string back onto the URL you have created.  If you don't want it added back, you don't need that whole 'if' section.
