Default URL address security

I have a web page where user goes to type ID and view or print his/her report. Everything works well except for one big problem: After the user types in ID and the report is generated, the URL address line is something like this:

 http://www.companyname/Reports/repor...namesearch=167

When I change the =167 to say 166, it will bring up another user's report with ID 166. How do I correct this so that another user will not be able to change those numbers? Can I hide that part of the URL address. Please help.

Thanks!

Default

pass in the variable via the POST method (form) instead of the GET method (not over the address bar)
