Add session name to  Response.Add header filename

Last Modified: 2015-08-25
|The below code outputs my gridview to excel.

This works fine but I'd like to know how can I add my session variable to the filename.


Session("Name") gets added to  filename=CaseloadOutput.xls

so it might say filename=Edj_CaseloadOutput.xls

  Protected Sub gtnOExcelOutput_Click(sender As Object, e As EventArgs)
        Response.AddHeader("content-disposition", "attachment; filename=CaseloadOutput.xls")
        Response.ContentType = "application/excel"
        Dim sw As New System.IO.StringWriter()
        Dim htw As New HtmlTextWriter(sw)
    End Sub
