Sending a form variable to the same page for recordset lookup

Sending a form variable to the same page for recordset lookup

hi guys

So I have a form which when posted is Inserted into a MySQL database.
The redirect is the same page with a success message on it.
I want to be able to display the ID of the inserted record on that same page afterwards.

I've tried posting a session variable, then setting the recordset to retrieve a record based on the session, and I've also tried setting the recordset to retrieve a record based on the POST value... but I'm getting stuck

Can you point me in the right direction please ?

many thanks

You should be able to just display it directly from the session variable set during the insert. You may need to start the session on the top of the page to make sure it is accessible:
