Place Selected Data From Listbox Into Global Variable

Question:

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.

Answer:

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.
