Hi,

This is quite simple and I'm sure it can be done (I hope!)

I simply want to store a formular in my table then retreive this and use it in my ASP page.

e.g.

In my table I have the following stored as a string:-

varLength*100

When I do my sql query:-


varLength=2.4

set oRSeofd99a=Server.CreateObject("ADODB.recordset")
sqltext99a="Select * from MM2_LU_UOM_Conversion where BUOM ='"&varBUOM&"' AND AUOM='"&varAUOM&"'"
oRSeofd99a.open sqltext99a, "dsn=*;uid=*;pwd=*"
 
varDemonitor=oRSeofd99a("ConversionX")

'if I print varDemonitor it prints as "varLength*100"  I want it to print as "240"

'I'm sure its just the way I call it from the DB,  

Can anyone help?

many thanks!

Depending on what version of IIS you are using, you can use the "eval" method to display the results, like this:

varDemonitor= oRSeofd99a("ConversionX")

Response.Write eval(varDemonitor)


This will evaluate whatever expression is in the variable and execute it as code, if possible.  You may need to add error handling just in case, too.

Hope this helps.
