sorry maybe I did explain it not good enough.

The problem is that if a user has entered data in form 2 goes back to form 1
and forward to form 2 again, the data he entered once in form 2 is lost. And
I do not find a way how the get the data out of form 2 because the back
button is placed in form 3 (same site as form2 ) to allow a different action
since we have to link to another site then in form 2.

sounds confusing? I know but I hope I explained it ok
