hi all
i have been trying to use session variables but getting no results
my site is multipage and from first page i am storing value in session variable and retrieving it back in other pages but no variable retains its value in other pages

$page=$_GET["page"];
if($page > 1)
{
session_start();
 $emp_nos = $_SESSION['MyEmpNos'];
/*for all other pages */
}
else
{
session_start();
  $_SESSION['MyEmpNos'] = $emp_nos;
/*in my first page*/
}

but i am not getting MyEmpNos value retained in further pages

The first thing I can see is that you need to close the remark surrounding
/*for all other pages

add a */ at the end

In effect this is causing the whole block behind it to skip and the Session varibale is never set. Register Globals will not have any effect on Session Variables either.

hello
its php -4
but i got the solution it was because i had a few blank spaces before session_start so session could not send cookies headers were already sent ..
