I keep getting the error: Syntax error (Missing operator) when I add 2 forms.  

search page---

      <select name="minprice">
      <option value="1"> no min </option>
            <option value="300000"> 300,000 </option>
      </select>  max

                 <select name="maxprice">
      <option value="9999999999"> no max </option>
      <option> 400,000 </option>

action page---

SELECT reals_id, zip.zip, city.city, state.state, price
FROM reals, zip, city, state
WHERE (0=0)
      AND reals.city = city.city_id
      AND reals.state = state.state_id
      AND reals.zip=zip.zip_id
-------------------------------------------------------------------
      AND reals.price GTE '#Session.minprice#'
      AND reals.price LTE '#Session.maxprice#'
--------------------------------------------------------------------
      AND city.city LIKE '#Session.scity#%'
      AND state.state LIKE '#Session.sstate#%'
      AND zip.zip LIKE '#Session.szip#%'

It works fine without the 2 lines of code in between the dashes...
I have a hunch I need to convert string to number

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

1) in your db - is the field reals.price a datatype of money?
if yes, then remove the ' ' from around the value
the only time you'd use ' ' around the value is if it's a varchar or text field.
2) are you setting your session.minprice & session.maxprice before the code shown here (on action page)
