Here is my problem...

I would like to create a conditional statement along the following pseudocode....

if these two conditions are true OR the following three conditions are true then do the following...I have grouped the conditions that belong together.  Normally I would write these as two different conditions...but I am looking for a way to shorten it as the code that occurs after the conditions are met is very long (it is a form).

<%if QSpro = "ed" and  Request.querystring("action") = ""  or QSpro = "ed" and  Request.querystring("action") <> "" and flag="error" then%>
FORM located HERE
end if%>
thanks for your help!

I added the proper parenthesis and formatted it for readability.
Try this:
     
<% if (
          ((QSpro = "ed") and (Request.querystring("action") = ""))
          or
          ((QSpro = "ed") and (Request.querystring("action") <> "") and (flag="error"))
      ) then %>
FORM located HERE
<%end if%>

Hope that helps,

groovymonkey,

After looking at it more closely, I believe you can use this much more simple statement:
         
     <% if ( (QSpro = "ed") AND ((Request.querystring("action") = "") OR (flag="error")) ) then %>
     FORM located HERE
     <%end if%>

Hope that helps,
