Lesson 5. Passing Data Between Pages > Retrieving Data with Querystrings

Retrieving Data with Querystrings

At the end of the previous lesson, users filled out a short form and submitted it to a page that displayed the value they entered in the form. As you know from the preceding section, the variable sent from the form to the test_form_processor.asp page was enclosed in the body of the request. There are other ways to send data between pages. You can send variables through URLs, cookies, and session and application variables. You'll learn all about each of these during the course of the book, but for now it is sufficient to understand that there are many ways to share data among pages.

The logical question that follows from this is, why are there so many different ways, and how do you know which one to use? The answer is that each has unique capabilities and limitations.
