    Default Using the dictonary object

    Here is the problem: My boss wants me to enhance a request form that sends e-mail to allow the user to enter another request based on the previous one. They could be coming into the program and want to enter a request based on the one the last entered yesterday or earlier (whenever the last request was sent). My boss doesn&#039t want me to use cookies, and he says that using the session and application variables will eat up valuable server memory. So he told me to look into using the dictoary object to store the information in. Is this possible? How do I access the dictoary object? Please help!

The dictionary suggestion is plain stupid, because there&#039s nowhere to keep it between visits!<BR><BR>Dunc
