    Alternate Way Of Calling Script without a "?"

    I've got a problem and I need to be able to call attributes beyond my cgi script in the url without a question mark "?". I have a dynamic calendar javascript that will link to a cgi database but the javascript won't allow a "?" inside the coding. If there is one in there it just is deleted out and everything behind it in the url is blank.


    Example:
    /cgi-bin/crown.pl?&field=4&DATE=2005-12-01

    Is there a way to get to this without using a question mark in the url?

    Thanks,
    Aaron

    Yes it will, but that's not your problem..

    Example:
    /cgi-bin/crown.pl?&field=4&DATE=2005-12-01

    should read
    /cgi-bin/crown.pl?field=4&DATE=2005-12-01

    (the first '&' should not be there)

    Another way to solve the problem is to submit the variables using a <form> with method="post", but that may require some recoding of your javascript.

    Yeah sorry that "&" was inserted accidentally. This javascript is a pop-up calendar that I won't begin to even mess with. A few .js files make it up. It really sucks because I finally found a calendar that almost let me do what I needed to do and a little ? jacked it up.

    Can you post a few lines of code that includes the section calling the script.
    The '?' should not be a problem. Maybe something else is causing the problem.

    If this is a 'canned' script, is it possible that the 'query string' (the stuff following the '?'), is being configured for you?

    Nedals, were were exactly right it was not the ? that was hosing everything up. I got it fixed and it is working great now. Basically I just had to be creative and re-engineer how I laid out the link inside of the javascript.

    Thanks for your help.

    here is that line if you care to see.
    location.href = "/cgi-bin/Supplies/xxx.pl?DATE="+ y + "-" + m + "-" + d +"";
