Place Selected Data From Listbox Into Global Variable


I need to put a selected item from a drop-down listbox into a global variable. The listbox is named select1. Here is my code:

dim strData
strData = Request.Form ("select1")
Application("Currentfile") = strData 

When I go the next page, the Currentfile variable is Empty.


Are you sure there is data in the strData variable? Check for that first, by adding response.write strData in your code. Next, check to see if your form is using a METHOD = GET or POST and change your Request... line accordingly to obtain the data from the QueryString or from the Form.
