I didn´t understand what you exactly want to do, but... I think including this php file with the variable will resolve the problem...

For this, only do this in the beginning of your script:

include("file.php");

Hunn, no... it will not work that way.
I can´t include the openner file "index". this file have so much things and i just need to pass the information of some variabels, and not the complete file. Is there some way to call some vars without calling the complete file? i don´t... specifying: first -file and second- vars.

Yes... of course there are alternatives to you.... like saving these variables to a file (using fopen) and then getting them from there....

But I think.. the better way for you woluld be using sessions. You will register the vars that you want and then, in the next page, you will get these vars from the session
