RE: How to keep persistant data between web apps



fixed

I'm using a validation list.  Use the user name as a key to the data,
retrieve the 'REMOTE_USER' from the Environment variables.  Pass variables
with hidden fields but re-retrieve the 'REMOTE_USER' in each program.

I had originally thought about that.  But my concern is that someone will
look at the HTML source and see the hidden field and then be able to modify
information.  My site will be used for my distributors to have access to
their data.  open order, net price, etc.  I do not want someone to be able
to change the customer number in the hidden field and then replacing the
variables on the address bar and access a different customers information. 
I would hope this would not happen.  But If I have thought of it then
someone else has also.

I just want to protect my customers/distributors.

I might go this route to initially get the site running until I can find an
alternate solution
