or maybe you have an "update" page where you remove items and then a "confirm" page where you can send to PP?

I'm trying to make a silk purse out of a pig's ear :)
I have a form where purchasers can deselect items they've added to their shopping cart. All the hidden fields have been numbered according to the items they *originally* selected. If they deselect an item, then it will probably necessitate a renumbering of all those hidden fields, since PayPal doesn't tolerate misnumbering: everything must be numbered "1" for all the hidden fields of the first product, "2" for the second, etc. If the customer selects 5 products and deletes the 3rd, then I need to renumber. I wrote a script that can do that. Now, I have to send the form to that script, with all its lovely hidden fields, then reproduce it somewhere so I can send it off to PP. That is, the form must return from the called script to a new page and deliver all the renumbered hidden fields.
TIA,
Tony

can you describe what you're trying to do a little more clearly?

Well it didn't like that, either:

Invalid request
The parameter, doc, was omitted from the request.

again. But look here:

<td tal:define="docs here/CheckOutAfterEditStuff">
<form action="renumberTheCart(docs)" method="post" enctype="multipart/form-data">
<p metal:use-macro="here/CheckOutAfterEditStuff/macros/main" />

See, I have a definition of "docs", but it's not pointing to a "use-macro" widget. Must be the problem, but how do I do that?
TIA,
Tony

I think you want:

<form action="renumberTheCart(here/CheckOutAfterEditStuff)" method="post" enctype="multipart/form-data">
<td>
<form action=http://example.com/s/renumberTheCart"; method="post">
<input type="hidden" name="doc" value="" tal:attributes="value here/CheckOutAfterEditStuff" />
<p metal:use-macro="here/CheckOutAfterEditStuff/macros/main" />
</td>

(my tal may be a bit off)

No, it should work the way it is...that is a URL I passed. I changed it to an absolute URL just to double-check, and got basically the same error:

Invalid request
The parameter, doc, was omitted from the request.

How do I pass the parameter, which in my case is quite long and stashed neatly away in a PT macro?

<td tal:define="docs here/CheckOutAfterEditStuff">
<form action=http://example.com/s/renumberTheCart?doc=docs"; method="post">
<p metal:use-macro="here/CheckOutAfterEditStuff/macros/main" />
</td>

TIA,
Tony

You might check out the basics about HTML forms first. The 'action' parameter is an URL and *not* some Python-like function call. You specify the destination URL inside the action attribute and pass the parameters as *hidden* form parameters to the URL - either using method GET or POST.

You'll find more on forms in any HTML tutorial. Start from here:
