Problems with user Authentication and Session Variable

I'm baffled on this one.

I have a standard login page, authenticates on LogonID and Password. I also set the Session variable to the LogonID. The Logon works fine as it directs to the proper pages upon success or fail.

The page that it goes to is a standard my account page with a recordset based on the session variable, and I've placed bindings on the page from the record set.

But no data appears.

I can drag the Session variable binding to the page, and that shows up - so I know it's there. But for some reason it's not creating my record set! Is there something different about the binding session variable and the actual one?

Resolved - i had made these pages by copying other pages that were part of the the CMS system. So the two 'require once' includes were landing in the middle of the other code, producing these unexpected results.

I could delete them, or move therm back to the top of the page and all is well.

Moral to the story - don't just willy-nilly create pages either from templates or a s a :"Save As" without knowing exactly what's in there first. I wasted 4-5 hours over this.
