I have a classic asp page with 5 anchor tags. When clicking any one of the tag, i want to get the value of that href tag (or  the DocType value) and want to store that in a session.

var strSearchUrl = getFilePath( "CustomSearchdsp.asp")
            <TABLE id = customize margin-left = 49px; margin-right:49px;>
                  <TD><A HREF  = "<%=strSearchUrl%>?DocType=Ordinance"> Ordinance </A></TD>
                  <TD><A HREF   = "<%=strSearchUrl%>?DocType=Resolution"> Resolution </A></TD>
                  <TD><A HREF  = "<%=strSearchUrl%>?DocType=Agenda"> Agenda </A></TD>
                  <TD><A HREF  = "<%=strSearchUrl%>?DocType=Minutes"> Minutes </A></TD>
                  <TD><A HREF  =  "<%=strSearchUrl%>?DocType=Permits"> Permits   </A></TD>
