I have an image I want to display depending on a condition.

<% If  CONDITION   Then %>

<% End If  %>

What i need to check for is a field value from a recordset.

The object is: Contactdetails.contactstatus

Recordset = Contactdetails
Field = contactstatus

I want to display the image IF the value of the object is different from :  0, 1 or 2

try this:

<%
status = contactDetails("contactDetails")
if Len( status ) > 0 and isNumeric( status ) then
   status = CInt( status )
   if status < 0 or status > 2 then
      Response.Write "<img src='pathToImage'/>"
end if
%>

Maybe i didnt explain myself, would be more something like:

<% If  NOT (contactDetails.contactstauts) = 0 or (contactDetails.contactstauts) = 1 or (contactDetails.contactstauts) = 2 Then %>

<% End If  %>

Just want to make sure that (contactDetails.contactstauts is different from ALL three values (0,1,2) THEN display whatever, else nothing, simply end, it wont display anything. Just need help with the syntax of that.

thats what my code example does. What I did is made the assumption that the contactStatus field will be a number (if it isnt, it wont do the check), then i check the number to make sure it isnt in the range of 0-2, if it isnt, it'll write out the image, otherwise it will do nothing.

Am I correct in my assumption in what you wanted accomplished?

Cant it be done with somehting like:

 <% If (ContactDetails.contactstauts = "0") OR (ContactDetails.contactstauts = "1") OR (ContactDetails.contactstauts = "2")  Then %>  

MY IMAGE

<% End If  %>

The above syntax is not correct though.

you can, just change your IF statement to:

<% If not (ContactDetails.contactstauts = "0") and not (ContactDetails.contactstauts = "1") and not (ContactDetails.contactstauts = "2")  Then %>  

this will display the image if the status doesnt equal 0,1, or 2

Try this:

<% If (contactDetails("contactDetails") <> "0") and (contactDetails("contactDetails") <> "1") and (contactDetails("contactDetails")<> "2")  Then %>
