"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

How to set a cookie:

Response.Cookie("mycookie") = "this is the text..."
Response.Cookie("mycookie").Expires = "January 1, 1999"

Pulling this right out of a book...  You should be able to set the Expiration date to whatever you want, assuming y2k compliance.  "mycookie" can be changed to whatever variable you want to save it as, the first line can only contain text, and I think that the expiration date has to be in the above format...
Another way to do cookies with ASP is with server variables, but they expire when the session ends.  If you don't use session variables (this is something I didn't know...) you can put in:
<%@ EnableSessionState=False %>
as the first line of your ASP code to get a performance boost.
