Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 188.8.131.52
most simple application:
have an asp with which a user can login with username and password.
username and password are used to retrieve a record from a msaccess database.
when not ok, login screen re-displayed.
no problem so far.
if ok, the i want to display the data from the database on a welcome screen, which is a different asp.
after accessing the database, i store the required data as
<% Session("Field1")=Field1 %>
<% Session("Field2")=Filed2 %>
then i redirect to welcome.asp
display of the username and password is OK
but displaying Field1 and Field 2 does not work.
sometimes just blanks
sometimes error Object not valid any longer.
I tried to use Session.Content(1) but that does not help.
i don't have a global.asa file. (tried that, but it doesnot solve anything)
That way you avoid issues about *what* exactly you are putting into session, as often "Field" may decide to store the field object rather than the field value, this way if there are errors while storing data you see the the problems at this point rather than later when you try to use them.
