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"

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

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.
