You need to set the response.Cookies("Member_ID").path property so its below the asp and aspx page...

If you dont set this property it will default to the ASP path and if the aspx path is in another folder it wont be able to see it



Hope this helps

You need to set the path like this...


response.Cookies("Member_ID").path = "/mypath"

Setting a Virtual Path for the Cookie
The Path property sets the path that this cookie pertains to. The cookie will only be retrieved from the client if pages are retrieved from the directory set by Path.

The syntax for setting the Path property of a cookie is:

    Response.Cookies("CookieName").Path = /VirtualPathThe following sets the cookie's path.

    Response.Cookies("User").Path = "/customers"

If the Path property is not specified it will be set to the directory where the cookie was created. Setting a Path of root, "/", causes the cookie to be sent to the server throughout the site.

Here is the long version :)
