using a session variable in a redirect URL

using a session variable in a redirect URL

I have an insert record page which, once a record has been inserted, I want to redirect back to the main results page. The user is logged in as a Super Admin, goes to a page with a list of Accountants and then clicks a link beside the Accountant name to access their client list. They then need to add clients to the database. I have a session variable Accountant_ID, so the client results page is as follows: acclients_results.php?AccountantID=12

The redirect link in the Insert Record page is currently:

$WA_redirectURL = "acclients_results.php?AccountantID=[Insert_ID]";

However that Insert_ID is passing the Client ID and not the Accountant ID, so I'll get something like acclients_results.php?AccountantID=687 rather than acclients_results.php?AccountantID=12. How can I pass the AccountantID into the URL?

in the link to the insert page, include the AccountantID url variable:

a href="accents_insert.php?AccountantID=<?php echo(isset($_GET['AccountantID'])?$_GET['AccountantID']:""); ?>">Insert</a>

in the insert form, make sure the form action passes along the AccountantID url variable as well. then use the URL variable in the redirect link instead of the session.

Hi Jason

I've done all that but it's still not passing the variable back to the results page - could you take a look for me? Details in PM section.

Thanks Jason, I've attached the following pages:

accountants_results.php
acclients_results.php
acclients_insert.php

on the acclients_insert.php page, the form action does not pass the URL

<form class="Basic_Default" id="Insert_Basic_Default" name="Insert_Basic_Default" method="post" action="<?php echo (htmlentities($_SERVER["PHP_SELF"], ENT_QUOTES)); ?>">


change that to:
<form class="Basic_Default" id="Insert_Basic_Default" name="Insert_Basic_Default" method="post" action="<?php echo (htmlentities($_SERVER["PHP_SELF"], ENT_QUOTES)); ?><?php echo (isset($_SERVER["QUERY_STRING"]) && $_SERVER["QUERY_STRING"] != "")?"?".htmlspecialchars($_SERVER["QUERY_STRING"]):""; ?>">
