Simple? dynamic link

Simple? dynamic link

I'm trying to add a dynamic link from a php page to a results page that it is populated using a particular field. I could create the particular pages using the 'Where' clause in the record set but I'm sure it can be created dynamically using just the link. I'm close using the link code <a href="page.php?itemID=10"> but there seems to be a cache problem as the browser remembers only the first link I click on. I've tried various recordset permutations, SearchWizard, searched the forums and got a bit lost. I'm guessing that either my recordset is incomplete and/or I'm missing code at the top of the results page. Is there a way that DataAssist or Dreamweaver can create such a link? If so, should I clean up where I am to let a wizard work. I've created quite a monster and it's working so don't want to go back too far. Or, do I need to add hand coding (if the latter, please can I see an example). Thanks

Let's try adding this to address your cache issue...

html:
<head>
<META HTTP-EQUIV="Pragma" CONTENT="no-cache">
</head>

Thanks for the quick reply, thought you guys were on holiday :-)

I tried the head changes (in both sending and results pages' templates). In additon to existing meta http-equiv= and content= and on their own. Now showing ID=all, but I have been trying so may permutations I'm lost. Do you want both pages zipped or just pasted here? (rather lot of code for a paste).

On holiday for what... Columbus?... the Vikings were here before him, and the Native Americans before them... LOL:D.

Actually, I think the WebAssist employees are off today but remember the Community Experts are not employees of WebAssist... we're just crazy designers having a good 'ol time.

Cheers,

Brian

Copied the 3 variables (Params) in recordset in WADA's details page and added them to results page. Then changed the ID to the required field and hey presto. Bring back the employees.
