ServerVariables ("URL") return incorrect pagename

Hi,
From Page1.asp, I use "Server.transfe r" to "REDIRECT" to another asp page
(page2.asp),
in page2.asp I use Request.ServerV ariables("URL") and
Request.ServerV ariables("REFER ER") to get the lastpage and the actual page,
this method (or property) return incorrect values: "Page1.asp" and ""

Why?

Server.Transfer is not a redirect and does not register a referral. The
ServerVariables collection is correct. Did the URL in your browser change
to page2.asp? No. Did you loop through *all* of the servervariables ?

RTM:

Method: Server.Transfer
Description: Sends all of the current state information to another
.asp file for processing.

http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/en...0507db91a5.asp
Server.Transfer Method
The Transfer method sends all of the information that has been
assembled for processing by one .asp file to a second .asp file.

http://msdn.microsoft.com/library/en...38c2a61317.asp
That's why.

Simply put, Server.Transfer transfers execution to a different page on
the server. This is transparent to the URL that was requested by the
browser. Consquently, Request.ServerV ariables("URL") would reflect
whatever page was requested by the browser.

Try using Request.ServerV ariables("SCRIP T_NAME") or
Request.ServerV ariables("PATH_ INFO") to acheive the desired results.
I'm not positive that even these will work however, as the execution of
the page2 may still be viewed in the context of page1.
