    how to pass dynamic variable to another div with onclick?

    Hello, I am trying to access a dynamic asp variable with onclick either in a javascript function where I can use it globally or set another div id with this dynamic variable.

    Any help is very much appreciated. Thank you!

    function doSomething(article_id)
    return article_id;


    <a href="#test" onClick="doSomething("<%=rsHeadline("article_id")%>")">try here...</a>

    <div id="test">
    <%articleid = request.querystring("article_id") %>
    <% Response.Write articleid %>
    The article id is articleid</div>

    Make up your mind: If the value coming from the DB as in rsHeadline("article_id") or from the querystring as in request.querystring("article_id")????

    It can't come from both. Or I certainly wouldn't expect it to.
