Can Spiders index ASP pages with parameters?

Can Google index an asp page with a parameter?

I have pages with between 2 and 5 parameters.
Does G index past the "?". So the following 2 pages as an example:
[example.com...]
[example.com...]
where the only parameter that changes between pages is the id=(number)

So - can G tell the difference between these pages and index them?

Thanks Pros

As long as the URL is different most of the major search engines will spider the page. Whether it is indexed or not will depend on the content. IF the content is the same then only one version will be indexed.

Also at about 3 parameters it looks like most spiders give up.

As per Googleguy, don't use "id=".

I wasn't able to have any spider get past 3 vars, so I just rewrote my URL's.
