I'm getting this error:

Exception Details: System.FormatException: Input string was not in a correct format.

 vbssript code
The source looks like this <snippet>:

Dim CourseQuery
Dim CourseQuery_numRows
CourseQuery = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Recordset")
CourseQuery.ActiveConnection = MM_connLearnDirectDB_STRING
CourseQuery.Source = "SELECT course.course_id, " & _
"course.course_name, " & _"course.summary, " & _
"provider.provider_id," & _

Open in new window


I'm converting the page over from asp to aspx , anyone know whats causing it?

Line 6 needs to break into line 7 so this:
"course.course_name, " & _"course.summary, " & _
becomes
"course.course_name, " & _
"course.summary, " & _

Hi,

Tobzz, the snippet was a little wrong, the syntax is correct, I will give up on converting the form over from asp to aspx for now, reverted back to the previous version.
