Default Passing Variables

Hoping some kind soul can help me out.

I have a page where a user inputs data into a form(Page 1). The data is then processed(in this case it's compared against a database for a match). If it matches, the user can choose to update/edit that record or enter different data(Page 2). The problem lies when I choose to edit that record(Page 3 should show the updated changes). I am unable to pass a certain variable from the starting page through... to the 3rd page.

I don't want to use QueryString so I am using hidden forms. I pass the variables from page 1 to page 2 successfully(Again, this is nothing more than the user filling out forms). But when I put the variable into a hidden form, it truncates the words. For example, if the variable was "Empty Set" it only passed "Empty." Since all data passed with this one variable will be 2 words, how can I get it to pass both words?

first you could try to use session("your_session") which will be automatically passed over to the next page.

if it's a string use server.HTMLEncode("your_string")

I always consider sessions as a last resort and you certainly dont need to encode the value if its being posted via a form.

When you view the source (the html being rendered not the asp source) in page 2 is this the point where its truncated? Try using '" "' around your ASP when assigning a value to the hidden field.
