Hi there, I am trying to re-direct users to a thank you page.  But I get a header error because the code thinks that I have already sent a header as part of session variables and as such, cannot create another.  Can someone help me with this problem?

You cannot do the
echo "<b>Hello $first_name $last_name, you are Customer No. $cust_num, you are logged in.</b>";

and then later on set a Location: header. Try removing that echo bit.

arjanh is right. all the headers, cookies, session cookies and all that stuff must be sent BEFORE a single line of a text is echoed, oherwise they won't be sent.

If you want to display content, then you should use a META refresh redirect or a JavaScript SetTimeout() redirect.  Either one will work, and you can just replace Header("Location: do_089xx.php"); with   <meta http-equiv="refresh" content="2; url='do_089xx.php'">   or    <script> setTimeout((window.location='do_089xx.php'), 2000)  ... both will forward the page after 2 seconds.

If you don't want to display any content on this page, place the function  ob_start(); at the top of your page.  This will enable output buffering and you can send all the content out to the screen that you want and still utilize headers.

you can use

ob_start();

function. so that all headers are sent at once.
