Losing Session?

Session("UserNa me") is set when someone logs in. Get to a page that
displays a record where you can type a comment. The form has an onSubmit
event that calls a javascript function. That function sets a javascript
variable called beenChecked = true and then calls a PopUp window to spell
check the comment. When it's done spell checking, it calls the submit
method on the form tag of the opening window. The method evaluates that
it's "beenChecke d" and submits.

For some reason, I'm losing all of my session variables using this approach.
Within the pop-up window and the original page, the session variable is
never altered explicitly. The page posts to the next page, which evaluates
the Session("UserNa me") variable, and it's blank.

What's causing me to lose my Session variables?

Thanks,
James

Don't know if this has anything to do with it but I had problems where
session variables on my development PC were only being retained within
each folder but not across folders.

For example a session variable set in one folder could not be read in
another folder.

What solved the problem was in IIS going to the folders in question and
doing:
Right-click | Properties | In the Application Settings area to the right
of Application Name click on the Remove button even though the
Application Name box was already blank.

And I did NOT need to do this:
IIS | Default Web Site | Stop and then Start

I'm maintaining (read: I didn't write it, nor do I have the time to spend to rewrite it) an application that is suddenly giving me grief. The reason I say suddenly, is because we're in the process of transitioning the server on which it runs from Microsoft Windows 2000 Server, to 2003 server (going from IIS 5 to IIS 6). This problem hasn't really occurred on the 2000 server machine, but it's happening MUCH more on the new 2003 box (not...

Hi Folks I have a custom CMS built in classic ASP that is losing session variables. To wit, I can create a situation where my 'show all the set SVs' test page shows a different set of SVs on each refresh of the browser. My test page goes a little something like this: <h1>Checking Session Variables</h1> <h2>Checking what session variables are set.</h2> <p>
