    Need to know what page called my aspx (page via a form)

    calling page could be aspx or asp.

    HTTP_REFERER is blank....


    Is there another variable to use to get it?

  2. HTTP_REFERER will be blank for a number of reasons (e.g. if the user sends
    the request directly, if the user sends the request from a different IE
    security zone, if user has a privacy proxy installed, if the user sends the
    request from a page that was transferred using SSL, etc).

    What are you using this variable for? You could just make your posting form
    contain a hidden input field containing info about the post form.

    You should never use this field for security decisions, as it's easy to
