Using ASP/VBscript with an Access data base. One of the items returned in the record set is defined as text and contains this URL value:

http://www.signaturetravelnetwork.com/product/cruise/ship_builder/overview.cfm?product_id=69&sup_id=26&utp=consumer&agency_id=__agency_key__&type=consumer

Before I can use this URL on my web page I need to replace '__agency_key__' with the value 826. How do I manage this?

wherever/however you are displaying this on the screen you would use this.

So if you have

Response.write(rs("URLValue"))

You woudl replace it with this:

Response.write(Replace(rs("URLValue"), "__agency_key__", "826")
