Syntax (ASP/Javascript) to redirect passing parameter

I have the following piece of code which works fine so far

    // append the query string to the redirect URL
    var MM_editRedirectUrl = "SPAddAttachmentlinks.asp";
    if (MM_editRedirectUrl && UploadQueryString && UploadQueryString.length > 0) {
      MM_editRedirectUrl += ((MM_editRedirectUrl.indexOf('?') == -1) ? "?" : "&") + UploadQueryString;


I need to pass a parameter to the next page named "NewUserid"

The value is: Request.Querystring("NewUserid")

How can I add that to the line:

 var MM_editRedirectUrl = "SPAddAttachmentlinks.asp";

I tried the following but didnt work

    var MM_editRedirectUrl = "SPAddAttachmentlinks.asp?NewUserId=rsUserid.Fields.Item('Userid')";

I get this in the URL


So it's not passing the parameter value

What about :
var MM_editRedirectUrl = "SPAddAttachmentlinks.asp?NewUserId=" + rsUserid.Fields.Item('Userid');

I am pretty sure the issue is you are using dreamweaver and processing a form which then redirects and you are mixing up their code.  

Are you using vb script or jscript?

Which script or plug in or drag and drop are you using?

If you could store Request.Querystring("NewUserid") in an hidden input field with an ID (you do this at the server with your ASP code) then you could easily access it from your javascript like so

var MM_editRedirectUrl = "SPAddAttachmentlinks.asp?NewUserid="+document.getElementById("ID_of_input").val()
