Hi

I have an iframe on a main page which will load a different page depending on who logged on. Which is where I assign the below session variable

<Iframe src="<% Session("subform") %>" .......</iframe>

But it doesn't seem to pick it up

Thanks

If the above doesn't work, this means your session variable is empty or not a valid url

No, it doesn't do anything. It just loads a blank iframe

Try doing this to see its value. Rest assured that the my iframe coding is correct. The only problem now is the Session("subform") may be empty.


<%
Response.Write Session("subform")
%>

Even if I set my session variable on the page that loads....

Session("subform") = "subentertainment.asp"

<html>
<iframe src="<% Session("subform")%>" <iframe>
</html>

If i write the variable to the page it comes up, so its not empty
