If I understand what you are saying: those variables don't exist until 
you SUBMIT the form. You can demonstrate this by looping through and 
displaying your POST or GET vars at the beginning of the form and see 
what happens when you first open the page, and when it calls itself.

And re-reading, I think what you may want is hidden fields. You want part 
one to call part 2, and retain values from part 1, etc? Echo the values 
into hidden fields in each step of the process.

<INPUT TYPE=hidden NAME=whatever VALUE="<?php echo $whatever ?>">
