    Default Re: Extracting info from a variable

    When passing variables in the URL, the first variable is preceded by a question
    mark and all subsequent variables are preceded by an ampersand.

    So, change your string to:

    .cfm?PID=76&UMversion=2.9&blahblahblah

    Then output that variable:

    <cfoutput>#url.pid#</cfoutput>

    Hope this helps!
