Run the setcookie code, and open the folder where your browser stores its cookies. Look for your cookie and see it whats in it is what you expect. Another suggestions is to echo out the code before you execute it to see if the values you expected are there

echo "setcookie ('USERcookie', "$user");";

Bastien-

I took out the quotes (as I noticed after the fact that I didn't need them) however this did not help.

"is the user cookie set" This I do not know as I am trying to test this on that second page. I get nothing, so I am assuming that it isn't set, however the first one $cid is working just fine, but it's variable doesn't come from a database.

Hi Jason,

2. is the user cookie set?

I am trying to set a cookie with a value from a database. Here is my script:

<? //Setting Cookies
setcookie ('CIDcookie', "$cid");
setcookie ('USERcookie', "$user");
?>

<?
//Database connection
require ("../../db_connect.php");

//Table Name
$main_tbl = "MAIN"
?>

<?
//Check the Password against the CID
$query="SELECT * FROM $main_tbl WHERE CID='$cid'";
$result=mysql_query($query) or die(mysql_error());
$check=mysql_fetch_array($result);

if ($Message == "NoAccess"){
echo("<B><CENTER><FONT COLOR=RED>You do not have access to that page!</FONT></CENTER></B>\n");
include ("staff_code/admin_links.php");
}
if ($check[PASSWORD] != $_REQUEST[password]){
header("Location:staff_login.php?Message=Invalid");
}
if (($check[PASSWORD] == $_REQUEST[password]) AND ($check[USER] == "A")) {
include ("staff_code/admin_links.php");
$user = $check[USER];
}
else{
include ("staff_code/controller_links.php");
}
?>



Then on the second page it is reading the cookies, but it will display the CIDcookie, but not the USERcookie. Here is the script on the second page:


<? //Retrieve Cookies
$cid = $_COOKIE['CIDcookie'];
$user = $_COOKIE['USERcookie'];
?>

<html>
<head>
<title>ZMP ARTCC:  Staff To Do List</title>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
</head>

<?
echo ("My CID is $cid");
echo ("$user");
?>

<body text="#000066" link="#000066" vlink="#000066" alink="#000066">
<table width="600">
<tr>
<td><div align="center"><font size="4"><strong>ZMPs Staff TO Do List</strong></font></div></td>
</tr>
</table>
<br>


<table width="600">

<td colspan="3" bgcolor="#999999"><div align="center"><strong><font size="3">Completed Tasks</font></strong></div></td>
</tr>
<tr bgcolor="#CCCCCC">

<td width="250"><div align="center">Task</div></td>
<td width="250"><div align="center">Status</div></td>

<tr>
<td><div align="center">10-13-04</div></td>
<td><div align="center">DLH SOP (new)</div></td>
<td><div align="center">Awaiting finish of other projects</div></td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td><div align="center">10-18-04</div></td>
<td><div align="center">ZMP Policies</div></td>
<td><div align="center">&quot;</div></td>
</tr>
</table>
<br>


<table width="600">
<tr>
<td colspan="3" bgcolor="#999999"><div align="center"><strong><font size="3">

</tr>
<tr bgcolor="#CCCCCC">
<td width="100"><div align="center">Date Sent</div></td>
<td width="250"><div align="center">Task</div></td>
<td width="250"><div align="center">Status</div></td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td><div align="center">10-09-04</div></td>
<td><div align="center">LNK SOP (new)</div></td>
<td><div align="center">Awaiting approval</div></td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td><div align="center">10-19-04</div></td>
<td><div align="center">M98 SOP</div></td>
<td><div align="center">Awaiting Approval</div></td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td><div align="center">10-19-04</div></td>
<td><div align="center">General SOP</div></td>
<td><div align="center">Awaiting Approval</div></td>
</tr>
</table>


</body>
</html>

So I am assuming that somewhere in my first page that my cookie isn't actually gettting set properly. I have tried many varitites and can't find any help sections on cookies from a database. Any help would be appreciated!
