I am new to PHP. Need Help.

I have set cookie and I can use the in all my scripts except 1.

When I try to use it in this one script it is blank but I can still see it
in all other scripts.

Can anyone help me with this.

In testing when I try to move my cookie to another var
it comes up blank.

Also when I change this test to echo other vars
I get the same info. It don't show a new echos.

Thanks for any help.


echo $Var;

$Mycookie = $_Cookie['Testvar'];
echo $Mycookie;
echo "Here Test";

echo "IKE";
echo $Var;

You first have to start a session in order to pass variables without $_GET,$_POST
so this is your first file:
this is the second file that will use it
echo $var;

the second file will echo your string. You can also use session_destroy when you don't need to use your cookies anymore (they will still be available for that page, to deal with this problem check unset)
