Is it possible to create a sesssion or client variable to act as a global array to hold values for one page while the user roams the site before "Checking Out" at the page where the array is diplayed.

Thanks in advance.

Sure.... the array is created as a variabe and stays in that condition for as long as you want.. doesn't have to be displayed... and since it is a session.variable you can call up the contents of the array anywhere you want!

If you want it readily available, put it on a javacript popup page callable on any page you want??

I just checked global declaration of array variable with session variable. It works well as expected. I strongly agree with pdliles.
