I want to show search results based on colum value but actually display a friendly name verses the id

This one may be to complicated but - start easy
page.php?incentives=23&pedigree=&credentials=&sire=&Search=Search
23 - Blue Collar Breeders

<?php echo((isset($_GET["incentives"])?$_GET["incentives"]:"")); ?>

I was thinking you had shown me how to 'print' a friendly name but I tried replacing incentives with BCB in each place and it did not work
<?php echo((isset($_GET["incentives"])?$_GET["BCB"]:"")); ?>
<?php echo((isset($_GET["BCB"])?$_GET["incentives"]:"")); ?>

Next Request Blue Collar Breeders is one incentive from a join table, the user may opt to select multiple incentives. Is it possible to display all the incentives a user selects?
page.php?incentives=11&incentives=22&pedigree=&credentials=&sire=&Search=Search
So I'd like to replace 11 and 22 with user friendly names.
Is this possible?

You can't use $_GET[] to get the friendly name, since it isn't in the url.

You would have to put a recordset on the page and filter it with the $_GET["incentives"] id value to display the associated incentive name from the recordset returned.

You can pass multiple incentives in the url, but you would have to pass them in an array with brackets [] like:
page.php?incentives[]=11&incentives[]=22&pedigree=&credentials=&sire=&Search=Search

Then you could create a recordset to filter based on the array to return the incentive names from the url and use a repeat region to show all of the incentives from the recordset.
