Redirect Help with URL

2 New Member
I am having an issue with redirection to a document.

Here is the scenario;

The user fills out some form information and upon submission is taken to a specific page in a pdf file. Everything to this point is working fine, the problem I keep facing is that the browser is changing the URL when it gets sent from the ASP script.

I.E. the url is something like this : library/sop/sop.pdf#page=23 4

When it gets sent to the browser the equal sign is being replaced by it's hex equivalent (%3D).

So I end up getting this: library/sop/sop.pdf#page%3D 234. The file will still open but it will not go to the correct page.

Can anyone shed some light on this? I have tried several different things but none have seemed to work in keeping the browser from changing the =.

Hi Morey,

emm.. lets assume that the "page" keyword is your querystring.. rite..

so on your asp. script do the following..
<a href=../somewhere/somefile.asp?pa ge=<%=Server.UR LEncode("someth ing_where")%>So mething</a>

Sahsi, thanks for the reply.

First, I forgot to mention that I am very new to ASP and am learning as I putter along. Also, I am calling the page from a Response.Redire ct. If it helps the page number is set to a variable because it will be changing from time to time.

I have been able to get the desired result from just creating a Response.Write link, but I really just want to page to be called up automatically.

Here are a couple of version I have tried that worked, but again the equal sign kept getting changed.

DIM Page
Page = "="+Request.For m("Page")

Response.Redire ct "../library/sop.pdf#page"+ Server.URLEncod e(Page)

URL = "../library/sop.pdf#page=" + Page
Response.Redire ct URL

Is it possible to do a Response.Redirect to multiple URLs? I have tried the following and it simply ignores the first redirect: Response.Redirect("test.aspx", false); Response.Redirect(p.UrlSend, true); I have designed the test.aspx page to simple write a cookie, just to see if it is working and it is not.

I have some issues with HTTP Headers and I was hoping for some pointers or references to good articles. Here is the problem. I have 6 .aspx pages, each page contains a common .ascx. This ascx serves two purposes, 1. it contains a tab strip with response.redirects to navigate to the other pages; 2. I authenticate the user by check to see if a cookie exists, if it doesn't I redirect to a login screen.
