How do I store username in asp.net CreatUserwizard in session variable?

I want to store the username in a session and retrieve it later.  How would i do this? Or does the wizard store this value, and if so how to i retrieve from the wizard?

Thanks for any help.

Code I have:
Session[UserName] = UserName.Text;  // this does not work

the values from the createuserwizard cannot be retrieved directly as we have been trying to do

to fetch username we will have to use
Session["UserName"] = ((TextBox)CreateUserWizardStep1.ContentTemplateContainer.FindControl("UserName")).Text

please have a look at the sample from the MSDN site might be more helpful than i can be

replace it to
Session["UserName"] = UserName.Text;  

this line will come only once your user has been authenticated
