Default Trouble with session states

I'm trying to go beyond what the book covers with session states but am not getting very far. I am setting the session state on one page, then checking to see if it exists on another. However, it's not working. Below is the code that I am using the check to see if the session state is present, and then what conditions to take based on that. The only condition that will take place is the very last one, which should be the result if the session hasn't been set. Any help would be appreciated.

<script language="vb" runat="server">
Sub Page_Load(ByVal Sender as Object, ByVal E as EventArgs)

Dim SessionId As Long
Dim userClass

'Determine if User is logged in

SessionId = Session.SessionID

 If SessionId <> "" then

  userClass = Session("class").ToString()
  company.text = Session("company").ToString()
  expirationDate.text = Session("expiration").ToString()

    If userClass <> "Client" OR userClass <> "Administrator" then
    End If



 End If

Catch excp as Exception


End Try

End Sub

Hi there,

It looks like you have an OR Vs AND problem:
If userClass <> "Client" OR userClass <> "Administrator" then
End If
Imagine a user with a userClass of Client. The first statement will then return false (userClass *is* Client) but the second statement will return true (Client <> Administrator)

I think it should be like this:
If userClass <> "Client" And userClass <> "Administrator" then
End If
This way, if a user is not a Client and not an Administrator, he or she gets redirected away.

Does that make sense?

Thank you for pointing that out. Unfortunatly I am still having the same problem. I know the session variables are being accepted because I can comment most of that code and assign them to a label. I'll keep playing with it and see what I can come up with. Thanks.
