Hi team,

Ordinarily, this code would be a breeze in any other language but for some reason, mostly due to no coffee intake today, I can't get it to display the data.

No errors; just not rendering the data to the screen.

Any ideas, please?

BTW, your loop doesn't seems right..

I think this one is much more better.. else you will only get last record.

==========================================================

      Do Until rsData.EOF
            txtNAME.value           = rsData("NAME")
            txtREL.value            = rsData("REL")
            txtESTNO.value          = rsData("ESTNO")
            txtDTFILD.value         = rsData("DTFILD")
            txtPUB.value            = rsData("PUB")
            txtTypeOfDocument.value = rsData("TYPEOFDOCUMENT")
            txtBTYP.value           = rsData("BTYP")
            txtBKNO.value           = rsData("BKNO")
            txtPGNO.value           = rsData("PGNO")
            txtDISP.value           = rsData("DISP")
            txtDISPDT.value         = rsData("DISPDT")
            
            
            strHTML = strHTML & "<tr>"
            strHTML = strHTML & "<td>" & txtName & "</td>"
            strHTML = strHTML & "<td>" & txtREL & "</td>"      
            strHTML = strHTML & "<td>" & txtESTNO & "</td>"
            strHTML = strHTML & "<td>" & txtDTFILD & "</td>"
            strHTML = strHTML & "<td>" & txtPUB & "</td>"
            strHTML = strHTML & "<td>" & txtTypeOfDocument & "</td>"
            strHTML = strHTML & "<td>" & txtBTYP & "</td>"
            strHTML = strHTML & "<td>" & txtBKNO & "</td>"
            strHTML = strHTML & "<td>" & txtPGNO & "</td>"
            strHTML = strHTML & "<td>" & txtDISP & "</td>"
            strHTML = strHTML & "<td>" & txtDISPDT & "</td>"
            strHTML = strHTML & "</tr>"

            rsData.MoveNext
      Loop

OR much more better...

=================
      Do Until rsData.EOF
            strHTML = strHTML") & "<tr>"
            strHTML = strHTML") & "<td>" & rsData("Name") & "</td>"
            strHTML = strHTML") & "<td>" & rsData("REL") & "</td>"

            strHTML = strHTML") & "</tr>"

            rsData.MoveNext
      Loop

========================

AND remove the hidden fields... unless you have something else to do with it.

Thanks much khairil:

Almost there.

However, I am getting weird data.

Each row of data says [object]

and also, when I remove the hidden fields, I get

 "Line: 152 Error: Object required: 'txtNAME'

And if I remove txtName, then the error is on next line.

Any ideas what else needs fixing?

Again, thanks a lot
