I think there might be a problem with php global variables and my web host. I've followed Davidj's video tutorial on creating a login page which does not work on the hosting site - $_Session['id'] does not carry over to the restricted page. I'm taking a break from trying to figure that one out. Now, I've made a database search page using DW recordsets and server behaviors but the search parameters are not carried over to the results page. After hours of trying to fix these problems - I've come to the conclusion that the problem lies with my hosting service (Dot5). Does this seem possible? Or, do you have any ideas what the problem may be? I'm getting desperate!!

Thanks for your help David - my hosting service had to provide me with a path to store the tmp file to be passed to the next page. My login page now works great! I haven't checked, but I hope you have a tutorial out there on building search and result pages. Thanks again.
