From login page... Welcome #username#.. problems..

I wonder of any of you can help...

I have 3 files... login.cfm, login5.cfm, and checklogin cfm..

The login.cfm is a screen where you put your username and password, press ok and it goes to login5.cfm>>

<cfquery name="check" datasource="jasvasquez-access">
  select * from Users where user_ID = '#form.username#' and password = '#form.password#'

<cfif check.recordcount is "1">
  <cfoutput query="check">
    <cfset session.loggedin = "true">
  <script language="JavaScript">
     alert( 'You sucessfully logged in ... Please press ok!.');
  <script language="JavaScript">
    alert( 'Please check your username and password, then try again.');

Then you press ok and it directs you to checklogin.cfm>>

<CFIF Session.LoggedIn NEQ "True">
  <CFLOCATION URL="/students/jasocke2/checklogin1.cfm">
<body bgcolor="#FFFFFF" text="#000000">

what I want is pretty simple (I think) although I've tried alsorts and it wont work!!
I want it so when you login it says Welcome (and then the username that you put in on the first screen)...

and ideas?
All I have been getting is username not defied in form!
Thanks in advance...

OK - Try putting (on your first form action page - where you have the query where user_ID = '#form.username#' and password = '#form.password#')
<cfcookie name="Username" value="#form.Username#">
Then where ever you want put
<cfif isDefined("cookie.Username")>
Welcome #cookie.Username#

it's coming up...

Welcome #cookie.Username# ...

where abouts do I put it in the text?

(sorry for sounding stupid!!)
I guess I don't know what you mean exactly
Are you saying this is exactly how you see it "Welcome #cookie.Username# ..."
If so - you need <cfoutput> tags around it "Welcome <cfoutput>#cookie.Username#</cfoutput> ..."
Let me know if thats not it ...
