Default.aspx expects a URL variable for member number.
For example, default.aspx?MemberNumber=3270000

How can I test for things like

default.aspx?MemberNumber=#member
default.aspx?MemberNumber=

etc..etc..

A neater way to check for multiple possibilities is...


Select Case Request.QueryString("MemberNumber") & String.Empty
    Case""

Premature submission...

Select Case Request.QueryString("MemberNumber") & String.Empty    
    Case""

    Case "#member"


End Select

Be careful about the option compare. If set to text it is case insensitive (this might not be important).
Concatinating an empty string stops you having to explicitly check for nothing! It jsu maske the code cleaner and simpler to read.
