I have a report which is generated based on a querystring.
Querystring is identified at the beginning of code.
   
     ChartID = Request.querystring("ChartID")

Now I need to use this same querystring to link to another report based on the same ChartID.

      <a href='Results.asp?ChartID= "ChartID"'>Complete report.</a>

Link works fine if I use the following, but not when I try to use the querystring.

     <a href='Results.asp?ChartID=112'>Complete report.</a>

Simply double quoting the variable name does not put the value in the link.  Make sure you define ChartID first.

<a href='Results.asp?ChartID=<%=ChartID%>'>Complete report.</a>
