Can you explain more  detail?
What is the value of variables: colspanfactor, fontparam,array_row1[aj][1], array_row1[aj][1]?

You used <CFOUTPUT>your code...</CFOUTPUT> or not?

Hi there,

the best way to get around this is to follow the foll steps.


1. delete the above piece of code by using [Ctrl + X]

2. Mark this area with a comment <!--- code here --->

3. Now code sweep

4. after everythigns fine

5. replace <!--- code here ---> with ur actual code by using [Ctrl + V]

6. there u r - bypassing the error in a smart way.

The reason why this occurs is b'cos of the '#' character.

even i get it many a times - & i follow the above set of simple steps to get around it.

let me know if it helps ...

K'Rgds

Hi vbDoc,

If u add a extra '#' just for the sake of formatting - then the output u get, wont be the way u want it.

ne-ways the answere to ur last comment is to add extra '#' in front of every '#'  - yes !!

eg #Anand# should become ##Anand## ...

but this would probably only help in formatting & to get ur code to work properly - u'll have to revert back to single '#'.

thats why i had suggested the simple steps ... but its upto u to decide so ...

K'Rgds
