Thanks for the reply, but it's not working. Can you please check my code:

<?php if ($row_WAATKroi['printer'] ===1  || $row_WAATKroi['printer'] ===2) { // Begin Show Region ?>
<li class="t3"><a href="#p7EPMc1_3" id="p7EPMtrg1_3">Rental</a></li>
<?php } // End Show Region ?>

Not sure why you are using the === construct, so if you do not know why you are testing for equivalence instead of equality, you probably want to use the == construct.

Have you printed out the $row_WAATKroi array with var_dump() to see what the values are for 'printer' in that array?
<?php 
 
if ($row_WAATKroi['printer'] ==1  || $row_WAATKroi['printer'] ==2) 
{ 
// Begin Show Region 
?>
 
<li class="t3"><a href="#p7EPMc1_3" id="p7EPMtrg1_3">Rental</a></li>
 
<?php 
} // End Show Region 
?>

try this..

<?php if ($row_WAATKroi['printer'] ==1  || $row_WAATKroi['printer'] ==2)
// Begin Show Region
echo  '<li class="t3"><a href="#p7EPMc1_3" id="p7EPMtrg1_3">Rental</a></li>';
// End Show Region
?>
notice I did two things.  1) rather than breaking out of php I used the echo to write the html to screen and 2 based on the if statement description at w3schools I took the curly brackets out (as was in my original example).

Thanks for the points.  Almost without exception the form data contains character strings instead of numeric values.  So, for example, a numeric (integer) value 3 is not considered the same as a character string "3" if you use the === operator.  However due to PHP type juggling, the number and character string are considered the same if you use the == operator.

Best regards, ~Ray
