retaining form values in checkout

retaining form values in checkout

I was wondering if there was a way to retain form field values when a user goes back to edit information before making an order. My purchase looks like this:

1. checkout form (credit card info, bill address, etc)
2. review information
3. Submit order

If the user finds something they need to change in step 2 I'd like to be able to go back to step 1 but with the form already filled in with the previous information. I tried adding something like this to the value field: <?php echo $_SESSION['eCartCheckoutForm_cc_number']; ?> but it's showing up blank with an empty value when I view source.

Actually, on the same topic I think, is it possible to have the purchase information show up in the success page so they can print their order info for their records? I can't seem to find any session info in my success page.
