| Another one from the "my brain don't work" side of the tracks:
| 
| I have a staff list that I want to be orderable by first or last name. 
| So I have buttons for each that link thus:
| 
| <a href="staff?orderby=firstname"> etc
| 
| The idea is that that feeds over to the DTML-IN tag thus:
| 
| <dtml-in "sql_search(search='foo')" sort=orderby>
| 
| But this barfs, because it's expecting a field name "orderby" and there
| isn't one.  How do I evaluate that?

<dtml-in "sql_search(search='foo', orderby=orderby)">

Then change your Z SQL Method to look like;

select * from Customers where
foofield=<dtml-sqlvar search type=string>
<dtml-if orderby>
ORDER BY <dtml-var orderby>
</dtml-if>
