Using Forms with ASP/ADO/VBScript

I have an Access database with 1 table. Most Items within the table are text with the exception of 2 items that are Integers. The form, of course, has fields contained with the database. 2 of the fields that are Integer types within the database are defined in HTML like all other fields (Input type=text...). Here is my problem: if the fields that are of the type integer have not been filled in upon submitting the form, I get "type mismatch" error. If the fields have info everything is fine. Also, I do not require the fields to be filled. I also understand the the Val function in VBScript does not work correctly.
Please help!

Do a check before posting to the database.

PostNumber1=Request("TheField")
If PostNumber1 = "" then PostNumber1 = "0"
Rs("TAbleField1") = PostNumber1

Just check to make sure it has a value.

If you need more help, please email me at masseym@mrqcorp.com nd include the database and all ASP pages.

Thanks MasseyM,

That was a simple solution. I suppose I made the problem more complex than it was.
By the way, I work for a financial institution and wear many hats. I noticed that you have started your own company. I would be interested in so material/information about your company. We will be in the near future look into offering Internet services. At this time I am working on a intranet project. I will email you with an address to sent info to. Again, thanks.
