This doesn't work for me. I am modifying the default EditForm.aspx for a list, adding my own dataview wp to the top of the page, above the default editor.

I added the code as described, but get no records for my list... Is there a way to display the value of the param being passed to the filter?

Phentermine is painless and hassle free, therefore it is far much better than surgical method of weight loss. Those who are planning for tummy tuck surgery should ask their doctor about Phentermine.
