Functions: Need some help getting vars to work when called

Posted on 2004-03-26
Last Modified: 2008-02-01
I have been given a function to use to generate a number. (Assume the function code is correct). When I pass my vars to it, it's not displaying the value. I believe I'm just using it wrong. Can anyone provide some assistance?  Thanks.


'Find if Consumer_ID in the database for Online Coupon routine
Dim intCID2
Dim cpnFNAME
Dim cpnLNAME
Dim strQuery2
Dim rsEmailFind2
Dim vString
Dim vKey
Dim vOffer
Dim encodeX
Dim eString

intCID2 = -1

set rsEmailFind2= Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Recordset")
strQuery2 = "SELECT Consumer.Consumer_ID, Consumer_FName, Consumer_LName FROM Consumer where Consumer.Consumer_Email = '"&Request.Form("Email")&"'"
rsEmailFind2.Open strQuery2, oConn

If Not rsEmailFind2.EOF Then
'get the consumer ID of the consumer for the Email Entered
intCID2 = rsEmailFind2("Consumer_ID")
cpnFNAME = rsEmailFind2("Consumer_FName")
cpnLNAME = rsEmailFind2("Consumer_LName")
End If
'Delete the Recordset Object
Set rsEmailFind2 = Nothing

' intCID2 now contains the PIN code for the coupons

vString = intCID2
vKey = "4gdbx8y0l6"
vOffer = "4096"
encodeX = "zkfAde37ncWxNQ8pM1VuiwG5gjvtKJSZURayFbClH6TL4IYE2OPhsqDo9rXBm"

function EncodeCPT(vString,vKey,vOffer,encodeX)

'vString is the p code

encodeModulo(i) = 0

for i = 0 to 60
encodeModulo(asc(mid(decodeX,i+1,1))) = i

'append offer code to key
vString = lcase(vString) & vOffer

vString = Left(vString & " couponsincproduction",20)

eString = eString & mid(encodeX,q+1,1)

EncodeCPT = eString
end function

Response.write "Fname: " &cpnFNAME & "<br>"
Response.write "Lname: " & cpnLNAME & "<br>"
Response.write "vString (ID): " & vString & "<br>"
Response.write "vOffer: " &vOffer & "<br>"
Response.write "encodeX: " & encodeX & "<br>"
Response.write "EncodeCPT: " & eString & "<br>"


The webpage displays above return:

Fname: Anthony

vString (ID): 1312
vOffer: 4096
encodeX: zkfAde37ncWxNQ8pM1VuiwG5gjvtKJSZURayFbClH6TL4IYE2OPhsqDo9rXBm

[Nothing for EncodeCPT]

Shouldnt you do it like this??
Response.write "Fname: " &cpnFNAME & "<br>"
Response.write "Lname: " & cpnLNAME & "<br>"
Response.write "vString (ID): " & vString & "<br>"
Response.write "vOffer: " &vOffer & "<br>"
Response.write "encodeX: " & encodeX & "<br>"
Response.write "EncodeCPT: " & EncodeCPT(eString) & "<br>"

You're not actually calling the function (or am I reading this wrong). Try this in your response.writes:

Response.write "EncodeCPT: " & EncodeCPT(SOMEVALUE, SOMEVALUE, SOMEVALUE, SOMEVALUE) & "<br>"

Yup, I got it:

Response.write "Function: " & EncodeCPT(vString,vKey,vOffer,encodeX) & "<br>"
