What i want to do is have a link from my page to this site:
http://www1.dhrm.virginia.gov/RECRUIT/
with certain feilds already selected, so all the user has to do is click a link on my site and it will bring up the other site with the data already searched. i think i have to use some hidden forms but im not sure the values or anything.
Thanks

If this isn't your page, it isn't a very good idea as (at the very least) you will be dependant upon:

http://www1.dhrm.virginia.gov/RECRUIT/

not changing its code.

I do php, not asp... but I'm doubtful that this'll work for you.
I mean... that's probably just a form.. nothing special about it.

The only way you can make it select stuff is if the asp checks data sent to the page, then autoselects an item from the dropdown menus based on that. If the page itself has no reason for that, then I doubt that you'll be able to do it... why would they code extra if they're not using it?

If you can, however, find an example of a page that makes that stuff autoselected, then you could just copy whatever it does.

But John makes a very good point.
