This is really an asp question more so that a db question. Here's the deal:
John Smith 12 123 Main Street Your Town State edit this
the 'edit this' is a link that opens the pop-up. How can I get the correct record to show up in the pop up?
Because a variable might contain some odd characters like spaces, it's usually a good idea to use Server.URLEncode when creating a querystring from a variable:
<a href="http://www.mysite.com/mypage?id=<%= Server.URLEncode(objRS("MyIDFldFromDB")) %>">objRS("MyIDFldFromDB")</a>
And in the page that is opened you can use Request.QueryString("id") to get the value of id.
