Here is the rough implementaion of the code...I am using Sqldatasource to retrieve contents from a table and displaying the contenets using a Gridview.I am maintaing a session variable also.

protected void Page_Load(object sender, EventArgs e)
string quarter = Session["quar"].ToString();
string projectid = (string)Session["projid"];
string User = (String)Session["username"];
string role = (String)Session["role"];
Session["Portname"] = Portinfo.Getportname();
Session["Portcode"] = Portinfo.Getportcode();
string pc = (string)Session["Portcode"];
userlbl.Text = User;
rolelbl.Text = role;


<asp:SqlDataSource ID="capitalrpts" runat="server"
ConnectionString="<%ConnectionStrings:userdatabase %>"
SelectCommand="SELECT Month,Proj_Id FROM MDMonthlyDetails JOIN Portinfo ON Portinfo.Portcode=MDMonthlyDetails.Portcode
WHERE MDMonthlyDetails.Portcode=@pc">
<asp:SessionParameter Name="pc" SessionField="Portcode" />

<asp:GridView ID="GridView1" DataSourceID="capitalrpts" runat="server">
