Default point in the right direction, please

I am writing a page in ASP.NET to interface with a page that is already written in asp. The page in asp has a list of user names, UserID's, request status, and request number.

The way the page is set up you click on the UserID to view the individual's request page, and it pulls all of the info from various databases together and populates the various fields in a new page (the one that I'm re-writing).

The way the old page I'm re-writting pulls in the various fields for the page is it calls this line of code in asp...

Session("userid") = Request.QueryString("userid")

then the individual fields are populated with a segment of code like this.
<%=rs.Fields("RasGroup")%> -- or like this -- <%=trim(rs.fields("Notes"))%>

I don't know how to do the equivalent of either of those things in asp. Does anyone happened to know if the same code will work in ASP.NET or a direction to point me into?

I already have the new page written and a sql query selecting everything yet I'm not sure how to get to stored sql query to actually print in the fields. I'm also not sure of how to get the page to automatically pull in the userid selection from the page before. Any help on either would be highly appreciated.

Sorry for being so blind on this one.

You cant share session value between asp & aspx pages.Pass the userid in the querystring.
Use server controls in aspx page and you can set the value for the controls using Text property.

Make use of sql server database to share sessions between asp and aspx. Just google for "Sharing session between ASP and ASP.NET" there are enough resources available.

Best Regards
