Is this an ASP.NET application?  If so, then you should remove the line "Dim Session as New Object," because Session is an object that's constantly in scope.

Object is not a type that you can index into, however, the "Session" object is.

to store info in session, you don't need to create a new session object. it already has been created to you.

Dim EnteredID As String, EnteredPW As String  <---- just for the sake of clarity, separate in 2 lines
Dim Session As New Object    <---- Object is NON instantiable class ... e.g. you can't really create a new OBJECT.

        Session("Employee_ID") = txtName.Text
        Session("Employee_Password") = txtPassword.Text
        EnteredID = Trim(txtName.Text)
        EnteredPW = Trim(txtPassword.Text)


CORRECTED/SUGGESTED
-------------------------------------

Dim EnteredID As String
Dim EnteredPW As String

'Storage
Session("Employee_ID") = txtName.Text
Session("Employee_Password") = txtPassword.Text
EnteredID = Trim(txtName.Text)
EnteredPW = Trim(txtPassword.Text)

response.write(session("Employee_ID"))
