Help with redirecting incorrect unique links

I'm not sure this is even possible but here goes. I created a survey and each user was sent a link with an automatic login using the link and "&u=username". Links were sent out in a hard copy mailing. Unfortunately the mailing left out the "&" before the u=. Obviously the links don't work. Is there some way to create a redirect script for each incorrect unique link?

put the whole url (or more or less the whole thing), I need to see what's behind that last argument.

Unfortunately the survey host has told me they won't put any new scripts up to help my situation. There doesn't seem to be much I can do on my end since the link isn't even reaching my survey. But just in case you can offer a suggestion, an example of the link is http://www.snapsurveys.com/swh/surve...83877519u=1000.

This will work, all of your data is being sent to the variable "k", you will just need to split it out:
Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. if instr(request("k"), "u=") >0 then 'k contains "u="
  2.    k = left(request("k"), instr(request("k"), "u=")-1)
  3.    'truncates k to right before it encounters "u="
  4.    u = right(request("k"), len(request("k"))-instr(request("k"), "u=")-1)
  5.    'assigns everything after that to the variable u
  6. else 'no problem, url is formed correctly
  7.    k = request("k")
  8.    u = request("u")
  9. end if
After this you just need to use u and k instead of referring back to the request object. Let me know if this solves your problem.

Thanks for your help with this. Unfortunately I don't think I will be able to use this since I don't have access to the actual site, just to my individual survey.
