Hi Team-

I could use some help here.  I have a classic ASP page that uses a iFrame.  The iFrame loads an ASP.NET page on another server.  

When my classic ASP page loads there's a QueryString value I need for my IFrame page to load correctly.

How do I pass a QueryString value to my iFrame so my ASPX page can read the value?

So here an example of my Classic ASP page URL:

http://www.myclassicasp.com/myform.asp?intakeID=12345678

Here's my iframe in my Classic ASP page:

<iframe id="myIframe" src="http://myaspxapplication.com/IntakeUpload.aspx" width="100%" frameborder="0">
</iframe>

Here's my code behind on my IntakeUpload.aspx page (The page that's getting loaded into my iFrame)

    Protected Sub Page_Load(sender As Object, e As EventArgs) Handles Me.Load

        Dim intIntakeID As Nullable(Of Integer) = CInt(Request.QueryString("intakeID"))

        If intIntakeID.HasValue Then
            lbIntakeID.Text = "No Intake ID found"
        Else
            lbIntakeID.Text = intIntakeID.ToString
        End If

    End Sub
