Is it possible to insert a session variable as a value in a form? Ive tried this, it gets executed and the value is set buts its not inserted as a value in the form.

<% String p = (String)session.getAttribute("p");

<input type="text" name= "anam" size = "4" value = "€ "'+p+'"" >

instead you could use  
<input type="text" name= "anam" size = "4" value ="<%= '€ ' + p %>" />
