Hi,

Am am getting an error:

Error Type:
Microsoft VBScript runtime (0x800A000D)
Type mismatch: '[string: ""]'
/admin/includes/pages/retail/orders/view_order.asp, line 23

This type mismatch is on:

<%
Confirmation = killC(Request.QueryString("Confirmation"))
IF Confirmation = 1 THEN %> <-----------------------**************LINE 23******
      <p class="Confirm"><img src="/admin/images/ico_ok.gif">&nbsp;Order number <%=intOrderID%> has been re-opened.</p>
<% END IF %>
<% IF Confirmation = 2 THEN %>
      <p class="Confirm"><img src="/admin/images/ico_ok.gif">&nbsp;Order number <%=intOrderID%> has been cancelled.</p>
<% END IF %>

The confirmation variable is put through the function:

<%
Function killC(strWords)
     badChars = array("'","&rsquo;","&lsquo;","@","%")
     newChars = strWords
     for i = 0 to uBound(badChars)
          if ISNULL(newChars) then
          else
               newChars = replace(newChars, badChars(i), "`")
          end if
     next
     if ISNULL(newChars) then
     else
          'newChars = replace(replace(replace(newChars,vbcrlf,"<br />"),vbcr,"<br />"),vblf,"<br />")
     end if
     killC = newChars
     'Bad Word Array

End Function
%>

Doe anyone have any idea why this would be displaying type mismatch?

Regards,
Carl

A further note:

If i put <% ON ERROR RESUME NEXT %> then the page runs and displays but the two confirm messages display on the screen when there is no confirmation querystring.

Cheers,
Carl

Well your Function Accepts a Parameter, and that parameter is a String.
 Does your Function will Always Return a Numerical Value?

if Confirmation is always suppose to be a INT. then...
Confirmation = killC(cINT(Request.QueryString("Confirmation")))

then you can compare as a Integer.

no, the fuction can sometimes pull a character in other pages but in this scenario it will always be numerical but if i use Confirmation = killC(cINT(Request.QueryString("Confirmation"))) whenever i know for sure it will will be a numerical that will convert it back?

Function cInt "always" Expects and Integer. if your confirmation variable will be either INT or String randomly then you have no choice but to use this variable as a String/Variant and compare using string value instead of INT.
