Passing variables with $_Post

I have a page that is getting data from a previous page.  I want to pass the same data to a third page.

I've tried this on the 1st page:
<?php
$work = "?".
                        "Min_Store = ".$Min_Store." ".
                        "Max_Store = ".$Max_Store." ";
?>
<a href =  "Survey_Print.php
      <?php
            echo $work;
      ?>
">   
<br>
                
<input name= "Print" type="button" id="Print" value="<?= $Button_Value; ?>"

Then on the 3rd page, I have:

echo "Min = ";
echo $_GET['Min_Store'];
echo "<br>";
$Min_Store = $_GET['Min_Store'];
$Max_Store = $_GET['Max_Store'];

The URL on the 3rd page looks correct, however I'm not getting the data.
The echo on page 3 just says "Min = ".
What am  I missing.

The first thing is that there should not be any spaces in a URL, especially in a 'name' for a name/value pair.  Second is that all the values should be urlencoded to prevent them from 'breaking' the URL.  http://us3.php.net/manual/en/function.urlencode.php  Third, each 'name' after the first one needs to be prefixed with an '&' although '&amp;' is considered to be a better choice.

It should end up looking like this:

Survey_Print.php?Min_Store=Min_Store_value&amp;Max_Store=Max_Store_value

Or like this:

Survey_Print.php?Min_Store=123&amp;Max_Store=456

I changed the code to read:
$work = "?".
                        "Min_Store=".$Min_Store."&;".
                        "Max_Store=".$Max_Store;

The URL is displaying:

http://chris.mrbreeze.net/Survey_Print.php?Min_Store=2000&;Max_Store=3500

The echo is still returning "Min = "

I just tried something and it works.  I changed $_POST to $_GET.

What's up with this?

Min works with the $_GET but Max is returning blank.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Ok.
I duplicated the code from your previous post:
Survey_Print.php?Min_Store=123&amp;Max_Store=456

So get rid of that ";" after the "&amp".

No, you didn't.  Somehow you put an extra ';' in there.  It's either '&' or '&amp;' but Not '&;' and not '&amp;;'.
