Download trying to download itself

Download trying to download itself

Universal Email download form action has to be set for the form button to make the file download. I set the action to the same page (pagename) and when I click the download button, the current page downloads ... not the download file specified in the download server behavior.

How do I set the form action so that it will work and not try to download itself?

change the forms action to:
<form id="downloadForm" name="downloadForm" method="post" action="download.php?ebook=<?php echo(isset($_GET['ebook']):$_GET['ebook']:""); ?>">

so that the ebook querystring variable being used by the rsebook recordset has a value when the form submits.

working now using session variable

Well ... your solution didn't work, but it let me know that if I could get that variable set correctly, it might solve the problem. On pageload, I set a session variable for the record number. I used that session variable in the form action to set the page correctly. The download is working now. Thanks so much. Sometimes it takes 2 minds to figure it out.
