Subject: [PHP-DB] Variables coming from forms

Hi. I have posted this thread before but didn't come to a solution so I try

I've installed Apache 2.0 and PHP 4.2.3 (both with the msi installers) on
Windows 2000 Pro.
The problem I have is that I get the message

    Notice: Undefined variable: var_name in ....

every time I pass a new variable into another page whether this happens
using the URL or a form or even sessions.

The strange thing is that if I run phpinfo() in the same page (where the
variable is considered to be undefined) I see that my variables do exist in
the variables section of phpinfo.

For example. If I use a form to pass a variable in a php file like this:
<form method="get" action="var.php">
  <input type="text" name="var" size="20" value="test">
  <input type="submit" value="Submit">

and have the var.php like this:

I'll get the message:
Notice: Undefined variable: var in C:\Progr.\htdocs\var.php on line 2

while I'll also get a line like this in the variables section of phpinfo():
Variable                      Value
_GET["var"]                 the value I typed before

I think this is really strange. Has anyone something to suggest?

Thanx in advance!!
