Passing Session Variables with Response Redirect Classic ASP

LT1415 asked
Last Modified: 2012-05-09
I am using classic asp vb script
I need to redirect to another page and include the session variable, user name in the redirection URL

If a place a link on the redirect page and click it, I can pass the session variables this way
ssion("UserName")%>" target="_blank">

But I do not want the user to have to click that link, I just want the page to redirect there and pass the username credentials in the URL

I tried something like this
 Dim userName
 username = Request.QueryString("UserName")
if(userName <> "") Then
sername=<%=Session("UserName")%>", False)
 End if

But got an error
Microsoft VBScript compilation error '800a03ee'

Expected ')'
