Hi,

I think you have to approach the matter in a different way.

1- Create a variable for the value of the Frontpage field
2- Compare "A" to the value of the variable that you have created
3- Try using RTrim instead of Trim
4- Check your data entry,  the space here comes from the data itself.  When you trim it does nothing.  I meant the difference between "OB " and "OB".

Would you please post the code of your dieted FrontPages DRW?

Thanks

Okay So it is nothing to do with the trimming now, as now both the value of a and the value of b are surely the same but it still will not execute.
<%t = 1 %>
<%a = rtrim(Request.QueryString("firstofsize"))%><br>
A IS, <%=A%><br>
<BR><br>
<%For t = 1 to 6 %>
<% b = RTRIM(FP_FieldVal(fp_rs,"size" & t )) %>
B IS <%=trim(b)%><br>
 <%response.write  (FP_FieldVal(fp_rs,"size" & t )) & "<BR>"
 If rtrim(a) = rtrim(b) Then

     Response.write "*FOUND*"
  Else
    response.write " NOT FOUND "
  End If
Next%>

The question is, is it possible to comapre 2 variables when both of the variable contain ' " ' inside the string?

i.e.

A = 72X90"OB
B = 72X90"OB

DOES A = B?

A = rtrim(Request.QueryString("firstofsize"))%

B = RTRIM(FP_FieldVal(fp_rs,"size" & t ))

From what I see the code is working because A will never = B because A=something and B=something & t.


try this:

<%t = 1 %>
<%a = Request.QueryString("firstofsize")%><br>
A IS, <%=A%><br>
<BR><br>
<%For t = 1 to 6 %>
<%a = Request.QueryString("firstofsize") & t%><
<% b = fp_rs("size") & t %>
B IS <%=b%><br>
<%
response.write  (FP_FieldVal(fp_rs,"size" & t )) & "<BR>"
 If A = B Then
     Response.write "*FOUND*"
  Else
    response.write " NOT FOUND "
  End If
Next%>
