Hi again GESF,
I tried your latest suggestion and still no go. I'm almost ready to give up.
I seem to be having two problems: firstly, I can't put the variable retrived from the first form into the VALUE= of the type=hidden form on the second page, and secondly, I still can't pass any hidden values to the inline frame PHP, even if I hard code a VALUE=.
If you have any further ideas, give me a reply. Otherwise I think I'll have to abondon this effort. Perhaps the browser I'm using (Mozilla) doesn't support inline frames, although they show up with no problem.
Any last recommendations?
