How do I send a WebForm back to the browser in edit mode if I don't save it in the database when it

Hi. I'm completely new to Domino development. I have a WebForm submitted by the user with FileSave, CloseWindow and saveoptions = "0." The content of the form doesn't need to be stored (now) in the database. On the other hand, the same form (with the same data and some additional agent-calculated fields) has to be sent back to the browser. When this form is confirmed by the user, it will be stored in the database, so I'll set saveoptions = "1."

My question is: How do I send (print) the initial form back (in an agent) to the browser (in edit mode) knowing that the document wasn't saved the first time?
The document would need to be saved. However, you could write out a cookie containing your field data and values and place the values of the cookie back into the form when you send the form back to the browser.
