Forward Posted Form Data

suppose I have the following:

-----------BEGIN page1.asp----------
<form method="post" action="page2.asp">
<select name="someData" size="1" class="smallbutton">
<option value="1">Whatever</option>
</select>
'and a submit button
</form>
----------END page1.asp--------------

-----------BEGIN page2.asp----------
aVariable = Request.Form("someData")

<form method="post" action="page3.asp">
<select name="someOtheJjunk" size="1" class="smallbutton">
<option value="1">Whatever</option>
</select>
'and a submit button
</form>
----------END page2.asp--------------

Is there any kind of way to forward "someData", whch was
posted into page 2, to page 3 without making it more form data in page2. I
pretty much want to just be able to do something simple in page 3 like this:

-----------BEGIN page3.asp----------
anotherVariable = Request.Form("someData")
----------END page3.asp--------------
Thanks in advance.

You cannot retrieve a variable's value from a page header by using
Request.Form any other way than METHOD=POST from a form where ACTION=
targets the page you're retrieving. So, I see two possibilities without
using cookies, files, etc.

Hidden field inside a form.

page2.asp
.... inside form ...
<input id="someData" name="someData" type=hidden value="<%=aVariable%>" />

OR

You could use a session variable.

page2.asp
Session("aVariable") = Request.Form("someData")

page3.asp
anotherVariable = Session("aVariable")

If you want to use Request.Form in page 3 then you will have to
forward it using form variables. If you don't need to use Request.Form
you could use Session Variables.
