You can store anything in Session Varibale

However, while retrieving you will have to cast it in specific Type

string[] names = new string[3] {"Matt", "Joanne", "Robert"};

string[] strarrSessionNames = Session("nameArray") as string[];

or

string[] strarrSessionNames = (string[])(Session("nameArray"));

for storing it's a simply statement

string[] names = new string[3] {"Matt", "Joanne", "Robert"};

Session["nameArray"] = names;

Okay, then access the info like:

string matt  = names[0].ToString();
string joanne  = names[1].ToString();
