I have a variable that would either be blank or have a date and the variable name is VdtmResponse

The code is written like

testoutput = iif(IsDate(VdtmResponse), 1, 2)

But I get the following error...

Type mismatch: 'iif'

Any ideas?

Are you doing this on vb or on a sql statement? IIF is NOT a vb contruct. It works on db only.

Dim testoutput
testoutput=2
If Trim(VdtmResponse)<>"" Then
testoutput=1
End

IIF is not available in vbscript, you need to have a customize function, like this:

<%

function IIF(cond, v1, v2)
    if cond then
          IIF = v1
    else
         IIF = v2
   end if
end function
%>

then:


testoutput = iif(IsDate(VdtmResponse), 1, 2)
