Hi Cheri. When I have trouble passing variables, I usually replace the
LoadVariables temporarily with a GetURL("testonly.asp",window="_blank",
vars=POST) so that I can look at what the response.write puts out to the
browser and see what's being sent. Then I go back and stick in the
LoadVariables when I know the right thing is coming through. But I've
never tried it the way you're doing. Do you care if more variables get
passed? Unless I've missed some reason for sending only the exact ones,
it shouldn't really matter--you can just ignore the ones you don't care
about. You could try it that way--Load
Variables("testonly.asp",0)--once just to see if iMyInt does get sent
correctly anyway (though it looks OK with your test movie->output
window--I've never tried testing it that way either). No other ideas at
the moment. But you're no dummy--I'm sure you'll have it working within
the hour!
