Wesley,

While I am not sure of the syntax you will use in your scenario as I work with coldfusion, here is how you can display your database data once you know the string to output your data:

This is a normal text field in a form, with an initial value of "test":

<input name="email" type="text" id="email" value="test" size="40">

You could do:

1.   Set a variable equal to the balance of the user.

2.   <input name="email" type="text" id="email" value="*CODE TO OUTPUT VARIABLE HERE*" size="40">

Sorry I don't have specifics for your situation, but this may help some.

Cheers,

Jason
