I am having an issue using the passed variable for the state;

Here is the passing URL: //localhost/GridViewQueryString_vb.aspx?state=IN

The receiving page will not pick up the value for "state" and gives an undeclared variable "@state" error.

Any help would be appreciated...
<%@ Page Language="VB" %>

i dont do asp, but..
i sat and read your code and the first time state is mentioned is in your select statement.

in php, i would grab the url paramater and put it in a variable.

$state = $_GET['state']; (or something, trying to remember)

it looks like you have refered to @state but at no point have you said that @state = the url value (GET value)
dunno how you do that in asp, but im sure thats what the problem is. hope this helps :-)
