What happens when you type c:/xampp/htdocs/test.php?emp=$id into the URL area of your browser? I bet your browser can't read that as a valid URL. Your browser needs a valid URL that looks like http://HOSTNAME/test.php?emp=$id where you replace HOSTNAME with the real host name (try http://localhost/test.php?emp=$id ).

Hi,
thanks for your hint. How can get the HYPERLINK value in the test.php file. Then it is possible to call PHP file(by HYPERLINK) inside cgi script. Need some more information or help.
