i.e. http://www.yourserver.com/yourscript.php?city=mobile&state=al or http://www.yourserver.com/yourscript.php?cityid=666
This will allow you to use $_REQUEST['city'] in the page you are calling to retrieve the city from the first example. You can also use $_GET['city'] but I use $_REQUEST because it contains both $_POST and $_GET.
The variable names are case sensitive and must be exactly what you put on the URL.
$_REQUEST['City'] != $_REQUEST['city']

I believe what you want to do is just add the variable onto the URL, like this...
Does that help?
Thanks, Robert Gillen

Subject: [PHP-DB] Hyperlinking to a new page
Ok, I know this should be easy, but im just blanking on how to do it. I have a webpage where you put in a city name, and it queries a database of all the cities in the US and brings back all cities matching that name. This part works just fine. What I want to do now is to create a hyperlink for each city name which, when clicked on will then call up a second page listing the details of that city. What I need to do is pass this page the city id (or any other identifying variable) to the detail page, but I cant for the life of me remember how to pass the data from one page to another outside of a form. Any help would be appreciated.
