how to call

Hello I have this


<% usr_ageLow = DateDiff("yyyy",Request.QueryString("usr_ageq"), NOW()) %>

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN" "">

Hw can I call the value to be shown on my page, I have tried the following to no avail.

<p><%= Request("usr_ageLow") %></p>
<p><%= Request.QueryString("usr_ageLow") %></p>
<p><%= Request.Form("usr_ageLow") %></p>

I was hoping that the 36 would be subtracted from todays date thus I could compare it wth a dob in my database.

but i cannot show a value on my page to begin with . what have i done wrong.

I guess should be as:

<%= Request("usr_ageq") %>


<%= Request("usr_ageLow") %>

as well as the other 2..

<%=usr_ageLow%>  is what I needed.

Thanks for your help.

this issue is now closed.



usr_ageLow is now a variable in your page, not an element of the QueryString (nor Form post).
