in reply to How to get CGI input parameters (was: question for the monks)

It's hard to tell exactly what you have going on without some sample code. But it sounds like you want to use CGI parameters to pass around some info. Here is some info on using parameters
in page 2 form: <form action="page_1.cgi" method="post"> <input type="hidden" name="info" value="$info_from_database">
in page 1:
my $info = $cgi->param('info')
Then in you can test and see if there is any data in the $info parameter and print it.
If you want it in a textfield then try this: <input type="text" name="textfield_1" value="$info">
You may also want to consider using a dispatch table as outlined by chipmonk here or by japhy here. A dispatch table gives a 'cleaner' way to program multi-page CGI scripts. Good Luck.
