Hello...this shouldn't be a hard question...I just have no idea about the ASP syntax.

I have a SQL search set up in an ASP file that is selecting certain fields where a condition is met. I want to add in a second condition...that another field is not blank. The field I am adding to this query is "WHERE HistoricalSignificance (IS NOT BLANK)...."

rsRegion.Source = "SELECT City, Historical_Era1, MailingListID, OrganizationName, Region, SiteOrg_Type FROM Sites_Orgs WHERE HistoricalSignificance =" " + Region = '" + Replace(rsRegion__MMColParam, "'", "''") + "' ORDER BY OrganizationName ASC"

rsRegion.Source = "SELECT City, Historical_Era1, MailingListID, OrganizationName, Region, SiteOrg_Type FROM Sites_Orgs WHERE HistoricalSignificance <> " " + Region = '" + Replace(rsRegion__MMColParam, "'", "''") + "' ORDER BY OrganizationName ASC"

are two strategies I have tried. Both result in errors. Any suggestions?

Thanks!!!

Use single quotes

rsRegion.Source = "SELECT City, Historical_Era1, MailingListID, OrganizationName, Region, SiteOrg_Type FROM Sites_Orgs WHERE (HistoricalSignificance <> '' or  HistoricalSignificance is not null) + Region = '" + Replace(rsRegion__MMColParam, "'", "''") + "' ORDER BY OrganizationName ASC"

Still wrong , you are missing and before region

rsRegion.Source = "SELECT City, Historical_Era1, MailingListID, OrganizationName, Region, SiteOrg_Type FROM Sites_Orgs WHERE (HistoricalSignificance <> '' or  HistoricalSignificance is not null) AND Region = '" + Replace(rsRegion__MMColParam, "'", "''") + "' ORDER BY OrganizationName ASC"
