convert int to String

I have the following code and I think it's not working because I need to convert an int to a string but not sure how.  The problem is generating the URL's where I have put <%=CStr(curDay)%>.

<%
blankDays = 7 - firstDay
curDay = 1
while(blankDays >= 0)
%>
    <td height="100"> <p><a href="/Calendars/CalendarDetail.asp?EventDate=11/"<%=CStr(curDay)%>"/2006&ScheduleID=<%=scheduleID%>"><img src="/Images/Calendar/"<%=CStr(curDay)%>".jpg" width="100" height="15" border="0" align="top"></a></p>
      <table width="100%" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0">
      </table></td>
<%
blankDays = blankDays -1
curDay = curDay +1
wend
%>



Thanks

why? and formatting requirements?

<%
blankDays = 7 - firstDay
curDay = 1
while(blankDays >= 0)


c = cstr(curDay)
if (len(c)= 1) then c = "0" & c

%>
    <td height="100"> <p><a href="/Calendars/CalendarDetail.asp?EventDate=11/"<%=c%>"/2006&ScheduleID=<%=scheduleID%>"><img src="/Images/Calendar/"<%=c%>".jpg" width="100" height="15" border="0" align="top"></a></p>
      <table width="100%" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0">
      </table></td>
<%
blankDays = blankDays -1
curDay = curDay +1
wend
%>

mgcIT,

That is the correct way to convert it.  What is the error you are getting?  Try using the line below to see what type that variable is.

Response.Write vartype(curDay)

Let me know if you have any questions or need more information.

This basically should create a series of links (in a table) that would look like:

/Calendars/CalendarDetail.asp?EventDate=11/1/2006&ScheduleID=4
/Calendars/CalendarDetail.asp?EventDate=11/2/2006&ScheduleID=4
/Calendars/CalendarDetail.asp?EventDate=11/3/2006&ScheduleID=4
/Calendars/CalendarDetail.asp?EventDate=11/4/2006&ScheduleID=4

and the links themselves are actually images named like so:

/Images/Calendar/1.jpg
/Images/Calendar/2.jpg
/Images/Calendar/3.jpg
/Images/Calendar/4.jpg

>>Response.Write vartype(curDay)

the output from this statement = 2

the error I am having is that it doesn't properly write the links.  It comes out as:

/Calendars/CalendarDetail.asp?EventDate=11/

and the image src comes out as:

/Images/Calendar/

Looks like you have incorrect quotes placement. Change

    <td height="100"> <p><a href="/Calendars/CalendarDetail.asp?EventDate=11/"<%=CStr(curDay)%>"/2006&ScheduleID=<%=scheduleID%>"><img src="/Images/Calendar/"<%=CStr(curDay)%>".jpg" width="100" height="15" border="0" align="top"></a></p>

to

    <td height="100"> <p><a href="/Calendars/CalendarDetail.asp?EventDate=11/<%=CStr(curDay)%>/2006&ScheduleID=<%=scheduleID%>"><img src="/Images/Calendar/<%=CStr(curDay)%>.jpg" width="100" height="15" border="0" align="top"></a></p>
