Error when writing cookies

P: 5
I am getting the error: Type mismatch:'Expires'
Microsoft VBScript runtime error '800a000d'
on this code:
mailid and local_number are variable that are read from a form.

<%response.cookies("login")("mailid")=mailid %>
<%response.cookies("login")("local_number")=local_ number %>
<%response.cookies("login").Expires="Date + 7" %>

First time I am using cookies. Puzzled with the error. Thanks, Dave

you just have to read the error message: "... mismatch:'expires' ... "

change <%response.cookies("login").Expires="Date + 7" %> to <%response.cookies("login").Expires=Date() + 7 %>

i think that's the problem!

Thanks, thought I tried it without the quotes, but I guess not.
Another question, I am doing my login process for username and password using a form and then validating the info via the database running on sql server. I have read that I should not rely solely on cookies because some people disable them. With most browsers set to "autofill" are cookies becoming obsolete? Are they more for the benefit of the programmer, since they require less coding, or are there still good reasons to use them that benefit the end user?
Thanks, Dave
