Yes, this is precisely what I mean by URL parameter. The details page should be filtering a recordset based on the id or some other unique value to ensure that you have only a singe record coming back. You can then use the bindings from this recordset wherever you need the details for that item.
I'm not understanding exactly what the problem is that you are currently experiencing. Please post back with a link where I can see this along with the precise steps that I should take to see the behavior. Having a detail page show the details for a particular item is not a very difficult task and it seems there is a fundamental misunderstanding either about the situation or the result that you are getting.
