Had a few looks into this and cannot find a solution so hoping someone here can help.
We post items as /item.php/85756
We ask affiliates to send us traffic as:
Google is now indexing /item.php/85756?ref=partner1
Want to still allow Google into /item.php/85756
but block the?ref=partner1
Is this possible using robots.txt?
Are you saying that your affiliates links are being indexed and ranked by google and you want to stop that happening?
Or that you don't want the end user to see the aff code on the end of the string?

an alternative would be to use pattern matching aka wildcards in your robots.txt for google.
