cf error

My code was working fine and then all of a sudden this morning, I get the error below and it's very frustrating.
I can't figure it out.
Please HELP!
Thanks. :)

      <CFSET SESSION.HLS.StepNum = 1>
      
      <!-- Assign user entries to the structure for the first page. -->
      <CFSET SESSION.HLS.FIRST_NAME = "">
</CFIF>
<CFIF IsDefined("form.FIRST_NAME")>
      <CFSET SESSION.HLS.FIRST_NAME = "#form.FIRST_NAME#">
</CFIF>

Hi

try this:

<CFIF NOT IsDefined("SESSION.HLS")>
     <CFSET SESSION.HLS = StructNew()>
     <!-- Represents current page.-->
     <CFSET tmp = StructInsert(SESSION.HLS, "StepNum", 1)>
      
       <!-- Assign user entries to the structure for the first page. -->
       <CFSET tmp = StructInsert(SESSION.HLS, "FIRST_NAME", '')>
</CFIF>
<CFIF IsDefined("form.FIRST_NAME")>
     <CFSET SESSION.HLS.FIRST_NAME = "#form.FIRST_NAME#">
</CFIF>


Let me know,
Mause

I just tested your code and it works fine.  check to see if sessions are enabled in your application page and if you can rebot your cf server.

I also tested it and works fine
but the cfset didn't work in the first place while StructInsert did
I don't know why

And yes as CFDevHead said check if the session are enabled in <cfapplication>
but I gues its turned on because it always worked!

Hi TheInnovator,

> 11 :      <CFSET SESSION.HLS = StructNew()>

> 13 :      <CFSET tmp=StructInsert(SESSION.HLS, "StepNum" 1>

Your missing bits.

<CFSET tmp=StructInsert(SESSION.HLS, "StepNum", 1)>

Your missing the comma after "StepNum" and the closing ).
