How to call value in different programs in PHP

P: 9
I make the value of in and out as global that is being input by the user in link1.php. This value should compare to the database before storing. If there are no equal value in the database it will go to link2.php. In this page, the user will input value through option button and then click ok. After that ,user must input his name and age in the link3.php. In this page link 3.php, I want all the value being input from link 1 to link 3 will be stored in the database if the user will click ok in the link3.php.

My problem is, only the data in link3.php are being stored in the database. Value from link 1 and link 2 are not stored. How can I call these value using global?

Hope you can help

You can pass variables between scripts via the $_SESSION global array. To use that you need to start each script requiring to access the value, with the session_start() command. After that you can simply store a value in the array, e.g.[php]<?php
$_SESSION['myvalue'] = "value";[/php]
In another script you can get the value back e.g.[php]<?php
$value = $_SESSION['myvalue'];[/php]
