Hi,

I a used to using ASP to connect to an Access db, but am having to upgrade to MSSQL due to the capacity of the data.  In chaning the ASP scripts I am finding bits and pieces of lines that are not compatible with MSSQL.  The one big one is anything in a Query that says isNull().  

What is the equivilant of isNull for MSSQL?  Instead of saying WHERE isNULL(custID) should I just say WHERE custID='' ?  Does it mean the same thing or am I missing a function that I need to be using here?

you would need to say:

WHERE custID is null

just for some background that i forgot to put before, the isnull() function requires 2 parameters.  if the value is null, then the function returns the other parameter that you are passing.

var = 5
isnull(var,3)    -> would give 5

var = null
isnull(var,3)    -> would give 3
