DataAssist created pages as plugins - passing the values

For starters - killer job on this extension - everyday I see it streamlining the way I work.

With that - I need a little direction.

Pages have been created with DataAssist; nothing special (insert, search, results, details, delete, update) . . .

I'm having issues loading the page correctly when it's referencing a specific item.

- The search page (....index.php? (default plugin) loads fine, no problem;
- The results page however won't display since it's looking for specified search criteria (I suspect because its a "get":
<form action="items_Results.php" method="get" name="WADASearchForm" id="WADASearchForm">)
- The dynamic plugin page I'm trying to use for the results page is ...index.php?page=itemResults; however, when I change the action on the search form from "items_Results.php" (created by DataAssist) to "...index.php?form=itemsResults" (same DataAssist page used as a plugin), it just reloads the search page.

Therefore, my question is: how do I properly and effectively use DataAssist created pages as plugins?

My goal is to run DataAssist, strip the DataAssist CSS (for the most part) and use the core code with no CSS as a plugin . . . this would be the BOMB!!

Thanks to all in advance for your input and comments.

Additional info (I know this is "old hat" for a lot of you guys - I'm still learning)

This is the string that DataAssist puts out (this if from the update page):
<form action="items_Update.php?ItemID=<?php echo(rawurlencode($row_WADAitems['ItemID'])); ?>" method="post" enctype="multipart/form-data" name="WADAUpdateForm" id="WADAUpdateForm">

The action already has ...items_Update.php?ItemID=xxx" - HOW DO I submit the form to the update page that is included on an index page as a plugin? (I don't know how to apply two ? to one string (?form= (or ?page=) and ?ItemID=) HOW DO I combine both these in one string?
