Hi Julian,

That should work, if you look at the species maps at http://www.marinebiodiversity.org.nz
I do exactly that to substitute the selected species name into the SQL in the mapserver DATA statement to generate the WFS layer. 

In this case the client application appends &spp=xxxxx to the query string instead of doing it in the cgi, but I have done the same thing in cgi's as well.

Perhaps try it with a lower case variable name & see if that works?

I have the following mapfile: http://www.pastie.org/2206896 with the following SLD: http://www.pastie.org/2206902 (generated dynamically)

I wondered how can I change the WHERE sp.id=%SPID% in the subselect (following a CGI parameter)?

I read http://mapserver.org/cgi/runsub.html, and tried with %SPID% (by passwing &SPID=3 in my URL) but it doesn't seems to work ... any idea?
