You have called session_start() before this haven't you? You have put something into $_SESSION['Login'] that's visible?

thank you for your help. I was making a dumb mistake. i am fairly new to php. I was calling session_start() on the page that i created the session variable on, but i wasn't calling session_start() on the page the was suppose to read the variable. I just added session_start to an include file and included it at the start of every page.
