How to give back pass-in fields

I can't recall a Parameter that was passed in by the entrylink.
What I did:
1. entrylink:  http://nameoftheurl.html?subsid=10123 (The number will be given by the Panel Provider)
2. At start page I defined a pass-in field: subsid (number)
3. Firefox plugin httpfox shows when I enter the entrylink: Parameter: subsid; value: 10123
(The weird thing is: when I download the data, no enty of subsid nor 10123 can be found in the Excel-Sheet!!!)

The problem is, I can't recall the pass-in field (subsid). I tried a text/filler question with [%subsid%] it stays blank!?!

My Redirect looks like: https://redirecttopanelprovider.asp?status=1&subsid=[%subsid%]
But the value of subsid will not be attached :-(

The movie on your Webpage doesn't Show exactly how the ID that comes in from the entrylink is stored and how it it given back. I'm googleling for 1,5 days every Google and sawtooth entry but can't solve the Problem. I'm using SSI 7.
Thank you in advance, every hint is appreciated.

Your link going into SSI Web is not correct.  Please see the help file at https://www.sawtoothsoftware.com/support/issues/ssiweb/online_help/index.html?hid_web_oneclick.htm or view the video at https://www.sawtoothsoftware.com/support/issues/ssiweb/help_movies/pass_in_info.htm and look to see how the link changes from login.html to ciwweb.pl.
