No errors the page just stayed on the
header('Location: show.php'); page - never went to: show.php

Yes the page if a combo form / action page

Q: I might have learned something.... Does the: header('Location: xxx.php');
command need to be in the first php block? On some pages when I make multi
php blocks into 1 big one and put the header command inside it - it seems to
work better - is this true?

Q: Also, is it possible that extra whitespace inside the php block can cause
the header command to not work? (I might have that happening also - looking
into it)

I tried refresh Daniel - and it worked great!

I even added a GET var to it - worked also

echo '<meta http-equiv="refresh" content="0;show.php?id='.$_GET[id].'">';

Thanks again folks!
