I have a form that requires a user to enter various information (name,
address, phone number, etc...).  When they submit this form, the next PHP
page checks to make sure that the required fields were filled in.  What I
would like to do is check to see if the required fields are all filled in
and if they are not, save the values they submitted and go back to the
original page, display a message that says the fields that need to be filled
in and populate the rest of the fields with the information the user
orignally submitted.  This will keep them from having to type in all of the
information again.

I can run the checks just fine to see if the required fields are all filled
in.  I then save the data from all the fields into variables.  What I would
like to do is automatically forward the user back to the original page with
the values (i already have all of the fields set with
"value="$variablename"" to allow them to get the data that is sent back).
The only way I have been able to get this to work is to set this up as a
regular form with hidden HTML fields and a Submit button.  I really want
this to be an automatic process.  Any thoughts on how to accomplish this?
When I set up a "Header", the user is forwarded back to the page that I
want, but none of the variables go with them (they are set by simply putting
something like "$savedlastname = $lastname, where $lastname is the HTML
variable from the original form).

Any help is appreciated.
