I need to set variables in an ASP app that are set to static values. So that when the app switches between pages via POSTs and GETs etc. it can still call them. How do I do this

You would have to use either the Session (user scoped) or Application (application scoped) variables:
<%
     Application("SomeGlobalValue") = "someValue"        '// scoped to the application
     Session("SomeUserValue") = "someValue"               '// scoped to the current user
%>

What about if its an array or number?

Also how would you then call it in the code?

You can store arrays and numbers in there too. ASP is implicitly typed so as long as you know what type of data you are storing you're good to go.

To pull data back out is as simple as:
someGlobalValue = Application("SomeGlobalValue")
someUserValue = Session("SomeUserValue")

Open in new window
