    Hi, I'm new to this web design stuff so hopefully this is not a silly question.
    I have a form mailer on my site for booking tours, currently the user selects a tour from a drop down list.
    If the user gets to the booking page from a page which provides information on a specific tour, i'd like that tour to automatically appear in place of the drop down list.
    (eg, you've decided you want to do a 3 day Ayers Rock tour, so you "click book this tour" you are then taken to a booking page, I don't want you to have to select that tour again from a drop down list, I'd like this tour to appear in place of the drop down list.)
    Essentially I need to get the data (tour name) from the first page, and then insert it in the form mailer on the booking page.
    If someone knows a website where I could learn how to do this, or even tell me what this process is called, I'd be more than grateful.
    Thankyou

    One of the guru's on this site (Rosland I think).. knows of a way to pass variables via the address bar using JavaScript.. actually while typing this I think I could to.. anyway

    There is a method called conceptual forms, such as, I click the Country I live in (UK) and then a form which previously had US states is now filled with UK areas/shires/counties etc..

    However this all happens on the same page.

    One way would be to have a page for each type of tour/event.

    However if you could cater for a server side solution this will not be hard at all.

    You're better off with a server-side language to do this: PHP or ASP or Perl/CGI
