Set session variable syntax

Hi,

I have a page with 4 recordsets, each one returns one digit 0 - 9, so results could be:

recordset # 1 : 4
recordset # 2 : 5
recordset # 3: 9
recordset # 4: 4

I am setting a session variable to be equal to concatenating those numbers, something like: 4594

The code i have right now actually adds and gives me : 22 as result, how can i teak it to give me the 4594 result ?

<%
Session("codeid") =(SecurityCode1.Fields.Item("codenum").Value)+(Securitycode2.Fields.Item("codenum").Value)+(Secritycode3.Fields.Item("codenum").Value)+(Securitycode4.Fields.Item("codenum").Value);
%>

Thanks.

Here you go

<%
Session("codeid") = SecurityCode1.Fields.Item("codenum").Value & Securitycode2.Fields.Item("codenum").Value & Secritycode3.Fields.Item("codenum").Value & Securitycode4.Fields.Item("codenum").Value
%>

<%
Session("codeid") =CStr(SecurityCode1.Fields.Item("codenum").Value)+CStr(Securitycode2.Fields.Item("codenum").Value)+CStr(Secritycode3.Fields.Item("codenum").Value)+CStr(Securitycode4.Fields.Item("codenum").Value);

<%
Session("codeid") = SecurityCode1("codenum") & Securitycode2("codenum") & Secritycode3("codenum") & Securitycode4("codenum")
%>

First and third solution adds to '0', second one gives me an error message.

BTW 'codenum' is an INT datatype, in case that has anything to do with this.

what you mean to "adds to '0'"

can you tell me the output of this ??
<%
Response.Write (SecurityCode1("codenum") & Securitycode2("codenum") & Secritycode3("codenum") & Securitycode4("codenum"))

Session("codeid") = SecurityCode1("codenum") & Securitycode2("codenum") & Secritycode3("codenum") & Securitycode4("codenum")
%>

can you tell me the error message

when you add it add as no, so we just need to convert to CStr()

it might be your semi colon or some thing

Dim SCode
SCode = CStr(SecurityCode1("codenum")) + CStr(SecurityCode2("codenum")) + CStr(SecurityCode3("codenum")) + CStr(SecurityCode4("codenum"))
Session("codeid") =SCode
%>

Yes, it is your semicolon at the end, we just copied that. please try replacing with this

then you need to use

<%
var SCode;
SCode = CStr(SecurityCode1("codenum")) + CStr(SecurityCode2("codenum")) + CStr(SecurityCode3("codenum")) + CStr(SecurityCode4("codenum"));
Session("codeid") =SCode;
%>

var c1,c2,c3,c4;

c1 = SecurityCode1("codenum")+'';
c2 = SecurityCode2("codenum")+'';
c3 = SecurityCode3("codenum")+'';
c4 = SecurityCode4("codenum")+'';

Session("codeid") = c1 + c2 + c3 + c4;

%>

or

<%
var c1,c2,c3,c4;

c1 = SecurityCode1("codenum");
c2 = SecurityCode2("codenum");
c3 = SecurityCode3("codenum");
c4 = SecurityCode4("codenum");

Session("codeid") = c1.toString() + c2.toString() + c3.toString() + c4.toString();

%>
