    you couldd put this in in 2 ways, either with a form, using a hidden input:

    <input type="hidden" name="filename" value="$filename">

    where $filename is previously calculated to be (as per your example): 67220060324110628PST.txt

    Then use the $_POST['filename'] variable to access this..

    Otherwise, you could use the GET method, such as linking to:

    page3.php?filename=67220060324110628PST.txt

    and use $_GET['filename'] to get this
