I need help passing information

Recommended Posts

Hello:
I have a file that receives information (variables X,Y,Z) from a link, searches a database and display results. No problem with that.

Now I need to use that same information (X,Y,Z) and send it to another page. (A plain page for printing the data)

[quote]$X = $_POST['value1'];
$Y = $_POST['value2'];
$Z = $_POST['value3'];

echo ('Data information for variables');
echo ( $X $Y $Z);

echo ('<a href="somefile.php?value1=$X&value2=$Y&value3=$Z">Print View</a>');

$strSQL = "SELECT table.* FROM table WHERE field1='X' AND field2='Y' AND field3='Z";

Rest of the file
'
if

else
while ($row =
' [/quote]


My problem is that is not no passing the information, in the link only shows:

[quote]http://www.mysite.com/somefile.php?value1=$X&value2=$Y&value3=$Z [/quote]

and not the value of the variables.

What am I doing wrong?

I use the same system to get the information in the first place.

Thanks for any help

You are using single quotes in your echo statement. PHP will treat your variables as-is and will not parse the the variables. Use double quotes or use the concatenation operator:
Double quotes:
[code=php:0]echo "<a href=\"somefile.php?value1={$X}&value2={$Y}&value3={$Z}\">Print View</a>"; [/code]


Concatenation operator:
[code=php:0]echo '<a href="somefile.php?value1=' . $X . '&value2=' . $Y . '&value3=' . $Z . '">Print View</a>'; [/code]

[code]<?php

$x = $_POST['x'];
$y = $_POST['y'];
$z = $_POST['z'];

echo "<a href='somefile.php?x=$x&y=$y&z=$z&cmd=print'>Print View[/url]";

?>
[/code]


somfile.php
[code]
<?php

$x=$_GET['x'];
$y=$_GET['y'];
$z=$GET['z'];

if($_GET['cmd']=="print"){

echo " $x <br> $y <br> $z ";

}

?>

[/code]
