Ok, I hope you guys can help.

1. I have a search field on page 1 and I want the user to enter their keyowrd which will be inserted into my search field in my mysql table.

2. I then want to pass the keyword as a variable to the results page which will filter the results from a recordset on another table.

My problem is I can do each seperatly but I need to combine the two. I thing it maybe sessions that I need to use but I'm having great difficulty in finding what I need to do on the web.

I really would appreciate your help.

No worries.

Not very savvy at all I'm afraid I tend to just use the Interakt extentions but I will be starting a course in October.

All I'm trying to do is capture which keywords people are using to search my database but not getting very far at the moment.

all i can offer is a foundation of knowlege

the lego bricks of php

this will get you inserting, updating and deleting data...

if this is not what you want then im afraid your going to have to revisit those extensions again.
