aspEasyPDF question

Dear Experts

I am using aspEasyPDF to generate a PDF output.  I have session variables, for example pPrice.  I am using the code below which is the syntax to return the records contained within the PDF.  

My session variable is called pPrice and I wondered how to correctly amend the syntax below to use the session variable (pPrice) to replace the entered value 250000?

Thanks for any suggestions

Grant
fp_sQry = "SELECT * FROM dbo.Property  WHERE pPrice >= 250000   ORDER BY pPrice DESC"

Try the below, I assume pPrice is a numeric value?
fp_sQry = "SELECT * FROM dbo.Property  WHERE pPrice >= " & Session("pPrice") & "   ORDER BY pPrice DESC"

Thanks for the suggestion.  I have tried this and I get the following error within the PDF

Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers error '80040e14'
[Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][SQL Server]Incorrect syntax near the keyword 'ORDER'.

The below is for non-numeric.    What is the value of Session("pPrice")??
fp_sQry = "SELECT * FROM dbo.Property  WHERE pPrice >= '" & Session("pPrice") & "' ORDER BY pPrice DESC"

Nothing ever in the clear!

This technical paper will help you implement VMware’s VM encryption as well as implement Veeam encryption which together will achieve the nothing ever in the clear goal. If a bad guy steals VMs, backups or traffic they get nothing.

Thanks again R Harrison.

The PDF is generated using the above but the Session value is ignored?

Have you checked that Session("pPrice") has a value?

You could add a line above, such as
Session("pPrice")=25000
and see if it works, if so then the error is with the session value and you will need to post more code for me to troubleshoot it.

Thanks R Harrison.

By entering a fixed value for the session it seems to work fine for example <%Session("pMinPrice") = 250000 %>

It appears that the only way to push through a value for the Session is to append it to the URL from the previous page.  However I have a similar problem with the previous page as to how to code this.

Please see code below which is the previous page.

<%
 
' Example that read an html file and renders it
' to PDF.
' This version is to show the Professional feature
' to read html files.	
 
' Clear out the existing HTTP header information
Response.Expires = 0
Response.Buffer = TRUE
Response.Clear
Response.ContentType = "application/pdf"
 
dim PDF
 
set PDF = server.createobject("aspPDF.EasyPDF")
 
PDF.License("EasyPDF.lic")
 
' Set margins for the page
PDF.SetMargins 20,20,20,20
 
'FileName = Server.MapPath("pdf_html_dbtables1.asp")
'PDF.AddHtml( "http:///" & FileName )
 
PDF.AddHtml( "http://dev.easiproperty.net/easi/CMS/pdfreports/propertyresults_adv_pdf.asp" )
 
 
PDF.BinaryWrite
 
set pdf = nothing
 
%>

Thanks for all your help with this.

I have used the following:  PDF.AddHtml( "http://dev.easiproperty.net/easi/CMS/pdfreports/propertyresults_adv_pdf.asp?pMinPrice=" & Request.QueryString("pMinPrice")  )

which has worked.
