Hello,
I have a field in registration form.
Users enter their information.
I match the data with database, if it didn't match, I use javascrit to
show error messages and back(using history.go(-1)) to return the registration form.
My question is I want to pass a variable and back to registration form?
How should I do?
Thanks.

I would suggest that this is not the best way to do it. Rather than trying to go back using the history, you should forward the request back to the form page and use the submitted request parameters to 'refill' the form fields as well as including any error information.
You didn't mention what you are using for back-end processing. If you are using JSP/servlets this is a very common idiom.
hth,
bear
