Trying to stuff a vb var into an href link and no dice.

this works fine as there is a value:
<td class="text_cell">
    <%=urlPass %>
</td>


This does not (cell is blank).
<td class="text_cell">
     <a href="<%=urlPass %>"</a>
 </td>

Is it just the syntax or? Thanks!!

still no:
<td class="text_cell">
     <a href='<%=urlPass %>'/>
</td>

The end game is to populate a cell with a link (URL) that's pulled from a sql query, the value in urlPass. Should I go another route?
