Using classic asp, what is the syntax for If and or? For example what would be the correct way to do this:

if((Recordset1.Fields.Item("STATE").Value)=="NY" OR (Recordset1.Fields.Item("STATE").Value)=="IL") {

the == is .net, you you only need to change those into =


if((Recordset1.Fields.Item("STATE").Value)="NY" OR (Recordset1.Fields.Item("STATE").Value)="IL") {

Try
if Recordset1.Fields.Item("STATE").Value ="NY" OR Recordset1.Fields.Item("STATE").Value ="IL" then 
	'Other statements
end if

There is some old code on the site that is not causing an error:
What is the "&&" statment?

if((Recordset1.Fields.Item("STATE").Value)=="NY" && (Recordset1.Fields.Item("STATE").Value)=="IL") {
else
{

if((Recordset1.Fields.Item("STATE").Value)=="NY" | (Recordset1.Fields.Item("STATE").Value)=="IL") {


Appears to be working.

&& is and operator

If you are using javascript then and want to convert above statement as "or" then  

if((Recordset1.Fields.Item("STATE").Value)=="NY" || (Recordset1.Fields.Item("STATE").Value)=="IL") {
}
else
{

}
