hi

Depending on the form method used (POST or GET) you can echo the userid variable using the following method:

Welcome <?php echo $_POST["userid"]; ?>.<br />

OR

Welcome <?php echo $_GET["userid"]; ?>.<br />

use a session variable to get the userid from the previous page. for example:

//page1///////////
if (*succesful entry)
{
session_start();
$_SESSION('userid')=*your userid;
header("Location:page2.php")
exit();
}
/////////////////////

//page2///////////
session_start();
echo "Welcome,";
echo $_SESSION('user_id');
////////////////////
