Hmm.  Here's how you can make it load EVERYtime the file is included, plain
and simply.  In the include file, create the function.and the call it after
you've made it.  To get the other function to work, you might want to try
placing the function ABOVE checkMaster();
 (you should probably simply put that in the same file, but above it).
function myfunction () {}


I have the feeling that the problem with the session variable is that you're
calling it before anything has been done to define it in the main page, so
it is null when you check it.  Try debugging it with echo statements here
and there that call out variables so that you know they're defined
correctly.  Also, turn on "error_reporting(E_ALL);" (you can simply call it
at the top of the page--first thing).  That will tell you when variables are
used if they're null and other errors that aren't fatal, but might cause
