    When you display the results the first time, you can create them as links and using a QueryString, you can pass this data onto another page. Here&#039s an example:<BR>&#060;%<BR>.... SQL goes here ....<BR>strSuburb = RS("Suburb")<BR>%&#062;<BR>&#060;A HREF="ShowMap.asp?SuburbName="&#060;%=strSuburb%&# 062;"&#062;&#060;=%strSuburb%&#062;&#060;/A&#062;<BR>----------------<BR>This is assuming ShowMap will show the map of the suburb and in ShowMap.asp, you&#039ll need to reference the suburb name using Request.QueryString("SuburbName"). This code is very brief, but I hope you get the idea. If you need more details, let me know.
