How do I use the global.asax file to establish a session value that is obtained from a sql database. The connect string is contained in the web.config file.  

The sql query would be similar to this:  select empl_id from employee
Where session.contents ("username") =   employee.user_name.

Session.contents("userid")= employee.empl_id
The global.asax file currently contains the following:
<%@ Application Language="VB" %>
<script runat="server">
Sub Session_Start(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As EventArgs)        
        Dim User As System.Security.Principal.IPrincipal
        User = System.Web.HttpContext.Current.User
        Dim username As String
        username = User.Identity.Name               
        Session.Contents("username") = User.Identity.Name

Here's how you'd do the DB call... (connSQL is the connect string)

Dim conn0 As New System.Data.SqlClient.SqlConnection(ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings("connSQL").ConnectionString) 
 
Dim cmd0 As New SqlCommand("SELECT empl_id FROM employee 
WHERE user_name = '" & session("username") & "'", conn0)
conn0.Open()
Dim empl_id As Integer = cmd0.ExecuteScalar()
conn0.Close()
