Thanks for your reply John.

In fact I'm using the method you describe where the same script is used to
both display and process the form.

However, in the area where I'm doing the processing, I want to redirect at
the end of it and still be able to use some of the variables in the location
I'm going to go to. Now I know I can just whack them on the end of the
location header:


But I don't want to use this method, I'd rather something similar to GET.

BTW I'm using PHP4+
