Thanks everyone. I was getting away with put the "header" anywhere I wished because the " output_buffering" was set to "On" in the php.ini file. I have commented this out and now I get the Warning/Error on my local system.
I will look into getting from one page to the next page after a Submit Thanks, ..../Ernie +++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++== -----Original Message----- From: Ernie Kemp [mailto:ernie.k...@sympatico.ca] Sent: September-18-09 2:27 PM To: 'HallMarc Websites'; 'Jim Lucas' Cc: email@example.com Subject: RE: [PHP] PHP Header issue The fundamental idea was to fill in a contact forum , submit it and then go to an upload page. I need to go from one page to another page. Please point in the correct direction on this.

The question I have is do you need this redirect to sit where it is? It would be so much easier to just write this page correctly.
