' Based on the non stop questions about how to pass parameters
' from page to page, I'm implementing it so I can stop answering

' be done based on the specific situation and is clearer if done
' in the same method on all pages, but it's really up to you.
' I'm going to be passing the ORDER BY parameter for illustration.
' This is where you read in parameters you'll need for your query.
' Read in order or default to id

'	strOrderBy = "id"
'	strOrderBy = Replace(Request.QueryString("order"), "'", "''")
