Default request.querystring() , request.form()

i have read from some threads here to avoid using the old asp object methods like response.write,
i am asking what about request.querystring() , request.form()
is it possible to store these values to glopal variables instead.

Ok, I know that I'm guilty of saying to avoid using "Request" on a few occasions. In MOST cases, you should have little need to use Request.Form because everything that's POST-ed (vs. GET-ed) should correspond to server controls which live as declared variables in the server code. However, you certainly may need to use Request.QueryString to get stuff from there.

Do you want to store items that you'd normally put in the form or querystring globally? What about using Session()? There's another thread from just recently discussing passing values from page to page if this is what you are looking for.

Work smarter, not harder.
