Thanks for link. I agree now with the author when he/she says: "this variable cannot be relied upon for many situations." It's weird how HTTP_REFERER worked okay in most cases, but not in other cases... WITH THE SAME EXACT BROWSER (Internet Explorer 6.0). Maybe there's a setting somewhere in IE to allow or not allow referring URL's names to remain accessible by destination pages. Nonetheless, I'll change to session variables for security now. They're a little more complicated, but probably better in the long run. Thanks again for your help.
