argh i'm still not getting this. i have a page that requests info from a previous page and if this previous info = yes then it's supposed to redirect the user to a different page. this is what i have: <BR>1st page:<BR><BR>if signup = "SignMeUp" then<BR> dl= "yes"<BR> response.redirect("UPDATE.asp?dl=" & dl) <BR> <BR>end if<BR><BR><BR>then on the next page i have:<BR> dl = Request("dl")<BR>'then some stuff here<BR><BR>if dl = "yes" then<BR> Response.redirect "agreement.html"<BR>else<BR> Response.redirect "thanks.html"<BR>end if<BR><BR><BR>however, it always goes to the "thanks.html" page. i made sure dl is in lower cases everywhere....the URL says : ../UPDATE.asp?dl=yes so i know it's thinking dl is yes...i don't get it. any ideas?
