At last I am back at the desktop and trying to finish off this cookie function. I took in what you said about using your search and results page and I cant use that because we need our page to be available on iphones and smart phones you see.
So i came up with possibly an alternative, which is to store the round value as a cookie, the week value as a cookie and the day value as a cookie, which works fine.
I then thought that i could change one of my recordsets to pickup the cookie variable rather than the element itself. I was thinking everytime the user returns to the page it would perform a search based on the data stored in the cookie. It makes logical sense to me. But now, for some reason the search no longer works ie. its not displaying the data at all. I will keep hammering at it, no doubt I have done something daft. Once again if you can see anything on the page from your end that would be really help full.
Hope fully I wont have to disappear again on to a customers site for as long.
