I've got this line:
<TD BORDERCOLOR=#c0c0c0 width="645" ><font color="#000000" face="Verdana" size="1"><%=Server.HTMLEncode(rs.Fields("ProgTitle").Value)%></font></TD>

I need to add an IIf in there that says, "if the Value of the field is Null, then make it equal to " ", else make it equal to the Value."

Instead of:
<%=Server.HTMLEncode(rs.Fields("ProgTitle").Value)%>

Do this:

<%
if Len(rs.Fields("ProgTitle")) < 1 then
  Response.Write(" ")
else
  Response.Write(rs.Fields("ProgTitle"))
end if
%>

This could also go all on one line:

<%if Len(rs.Fields("ProgTitle")) < 1 then Response.Write(" ") else Response.Write(rs.Fields("ProgTitle")) end if%>

BTW, if for some reason this data can be a zero length string, yet not be Null, use this:

<%if IsNull(rs.Fields("ProgTitle")) then Response.Write(" ") else Response.Write(rs.Fields("ProgTitle")) end if%>

But chances are, the first post is what you want.

Sorry for the delay.  Had to go out-of-town unexpectedly.

This works great.  Thanks for the help.
