How to pass form variables from login page?

I am relatively new to web development and dreamweaver.  I have an ASP page that prompts for username and password.  I have then set the server behavior in dreamweaver to login user.  Everything seems to be working fine as far as logging in the user, but I can't figure out how to diplay the user name on the destination page.  Any help is greatly appreciated.

Dreamweaver passes the username across as a session variable called Session("MM_Username"). to display your username on any destination page do the following.

1. click on data bindings tab next to the server behaviours
2. click the plus button and select session variable
3. type MM_Username in the dialogue box
4. drag the newly created variable from the bindings to the position on the page where you want your username to appear.

Alternatively you could place the following ASP code into the page code <%=MM_Username%> which is much quiker if you're into any coding at all.

The clue to how this is done by the way is revealed by looking at the code on the destination page where the user verification takes place - i.e
If Session("MM_Username") <> "" Then

That helps.  I was trying to reference it as just a variable and not a session variable.  Thank you for your help.
