    You have got spaces in your query string, the query string should be url encoded which means replacing spaces with %20 etc. ASP sould have a function for url encoding and decoding but I don't know cos I use PHP

    I assume that this should solve your problem, if not I will take another look.

    I am fairly new to ASP and am using it in a simple form at http://www.image-box.net
    My question is this, why when using Netscape does it return an error (Error 400) when ever a link is clicked with a query string following the url, eg "../somepage?form=Site Evaluation Request"
    Is this a VBScript problem for Netscape perhaps? The links work fine in Internet Explorer.

    Actually since ASP isn't actually a language but a system technology you can use either Javascript or VBScript to do your coding in. I haven't used VBScript all that much but if it doesn't have a built in encoding/decoding function you could sure build one easy enough. I do know that Javascript or JScript as Microsoft calls it has both functions they are simply called escape and unescape.

    Thankyou for you responces simply adding the %20 has worked fine.
    On the encoding/decoding issue and ASP as a whole what would you recommend as a good source book for a ASP wanna-be? I have already got the Wrox ASP for beginners. I am cracking through it and want to learn more.
