   Are cookies enabled in the browser?  Even if they're not, you'll still be able to set and retrieve on the same page load.  Try posting to another .asp file and retrieving the cookie in *that* page to be sure.

Okay, thanks Ken. At least I know I'm headed in the right direction.

In the ASP page, the cookie is set as follows:
response.cookies("access_level") = session("access_level")

Then just to be sure the cookies is being set, I called it again on the same 
response.write("level=" & request.cookies("access_level"))

It returns the value as expected. In the ASP.NET file, this returns 

And this returns an error:

System.NullReferenceException: Object reference not set to an instance of 
an object.

Thus my confusion. I'll keep searching, and in the mean time if anyone else 
can point out my (silly?) error....
