Hi, Jonathan, again! Well, since I asked for the details, I guess I've made
it my responsibility to answer, huh! I'll give it a go, then somebody can
correct me if I'm wrong.

You COULD make it all one movie, and have the editable text-field name from
the form be repeated as a (non-editable) text-field on the intro (same name,
that is, you'll have to remember to follow the correct paths to get the
variable)

OR you could send the variable to the next movie by including in the button,
after the URL, a "?varname" (without the quotes) where varname is the name
of the text field containing the user name. That is, in the GetURL where
you'll put your new window info, put
http://www.yourdomain.com/newpagename.html?varname and the intro movie has
"varname" as the name of the text-field where you want the user name to
show.

HTH (and hope it makes sense)

ps...some people would likely tell you to NOT change the subject line...I
don't filter/sort that way, but some do.
