If you are dealing with a single record, ticket #, link, etc.

<a href="http://mysite.com/view_ticket.php?id=<?php echo $row['_ticketNum']; ?>">Click Here</a>

On the next page (view_ticket.php)

$ticket_id = $_GET['id'];

If your are dealing with multiple ticket #'s and hyperlinks at the same time the process would be the same except it will be necessary to create your hyperlink from within the same loop that contains the ticket #.

echo '<a href="itheadCMAssign_New_Ticket.php?id="'.echo $row['_ticketNum'];.'"">'.$row['_ticketNum'].'</a>';

Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_ECHO in C:\xampp\htdocs\joycee\ithead\itheadCM_New_Tickets.php on line 62

i did this in the first page

$i;
                $ticketNum = $row['_ticketNum'];
				echo "<tr align='center' class='tableContent'>";
				echo "<td>";
                echo "<input type='radio' name='ticketNum' value='$ticketNum' />";
                echo "</td><td>";
				$ticket = $row['_ticketNum'];
				echo '<a href="itheadCMAssign_New_Ticket.php?id=$ticket">'.$row['_ticketNum'].'</a>';
				echo "</td>";

and this one on the next page

$ticketNum = $_GET['id'];
			$result = mysql_query("SELECT _assets_id, _user_accounts_id
								  FROM  trouble_ticket
								  WHERE _ticketNum ='$ticketNum'");

but it shows no results. it should show me the details but nothing appears on the screen

does the iframe affect this problem? the url doesn't change, it is always the url of the main page that is shown in the address bar.

echo '<a href="itheadCMAssign_New_Ticket.php?id="'. $row['_ticketNum'];.'"">'.$row['_ticketNum'].'</a>';
//removed the second echo

There is a real good chance that iframe is the problem there, sorry I can't give you a definite answer on that one. I never use iframes for anything. IMHO Ajax is the better way to go.
