Form mail 2 ( Son of )

Lost form values

Having filled in values in a form then form mailed them, when I return to the page, the form values have all gone but I need them to now create a form for printing, using those values. When I run the pages on my local machine and return to the page after form mail, the form values are all there but on the web the browser acts differently. To return from the response page, I just use the "back" button.

I am wondering something about this form, as I have had similar problems in the past:

1) Are you using a database to store the fields that are being filled in from the form?
- If so, your problems are easily answered.

-I think you may need to form your question a tad more clearly; are you asking for a way to have the information from the form in HTML so that you can print it?

If so, what script are you using for the form?

What Im doing is to fill in a normal form with standard hidden fields then form mail them to my email address. When I return from the response page I then use those values in a javascript to load a new page but using document.write() put those values in a format for printing and do a bit of manipulation on them. However when I return from the response page the values have gone so I cant use the javascript to generate the page. Im not using database, just form and javascript. However on my local machine running the same pages locally, the values are not lost. Its a problem
