Encoding URL

If I want to pass a SQL WHERE clause as a URL parm, I need to encode all the parms, correct?  So, I'm using Server.UrlEncode(parms) prior to doing the Response.Redirect.  Now, on the other end when I want to extract the parms, I guess I need to decode first?  I can Server.UrlDecode.   But if I'm using HttpContext.Current.Request.QueryString to get the parm, how do I use both HttpContext.Current.Request.QueryString and Server.UrlDecode in combination?

do you mean:

Server.UrlDecode(HttpContext.Current.Request.QueryString(parms).ToString())

I tried that.  it does not work.  I have this:

report_id = Server.UrlDecode(HttpContext.Current.Request.QueryString("report_id").ToString())

This part is nothing:

HttpContext.Current.Request.QueryString("report_id")

because it does not find the "report_id" because everything after the ? in the URL is encoded.  So, How do I extract parms from an encoded URL?  If not encoded, this works fine:

HttpContext.Current.Request.QueryString("report_id")

I got it working.  Only the data is supposed to be encoded.  I was encoding everything after the ?.  

Thanks!
