I'm not sure whether the solution to my problem will involve Javascript, PHP, mySQL or just HTML so I thought I would start my thread here.

I am constructing a hotel booking form. When the site visitor puts in his dates and requirements the PHP file goes through a long process to check availability of rooms, prices, special offers, discounts and minimum stays (using MySQL) and then produces a table of results. It's a highly dynamic process that ends up with a table that might look like this:
Double Room
27 Feb 2012 Bed & breakfast 80.00
Extra bed 15.00
28 Feb 2012 Bed & breakfast 80.00
Extra bed 15.00
190.00
Discount -19.00
TOTAL 171.00


At this point I want to provide a button to a booking form which will be in a separate tab (being https). I want to pass the table of information to the booking form (for information of the visitor and also so that it can be forwarded to the hotel). However I don't want to go through the whole PHP/MySQL process all over again when I already have generated the result.

How can I simply pass the content of the table to the next page?

Thanks in anticipation
Paul

Well the forum doesn't seem to let me present the table properly. It should look like a three column table, with all the monetary values lining up in the third column. I hope you can see what I'm trying to achieve.
