URL stirng for passing query on Web-enabled database

How do I pass query string to the gent on the Web? I have a database that is Web enabled and I am using the following code, which I placed under a button to send the query string to the agent on the Web for a search.

a- Field querystring :=Textstring

Textstring is a text filed used in the form to capture value from the Web users.

B-@URLOpen(http://hostname/dbname/searchagent?OpenAgent&query="&querystring)

My agent is available to the Web user, which runs, but the display agent is done. I think the query string is not passing to the agent. What am I doing wrong?
Your URL string should be: ?/searchagent?OpenAgent&query_string You don't need the "query=". Also note that the notes CGI query string tag is: Query_String and not querystring.
