IF stmt in asp loop


I have the followings in asp. How to display objRec8("Amount") as negative number if objRec8("CreditDebit")='C'?

Do While Not objRec8.EOF
      Response.Write _
        "<TR ALIGN=CENTER BGCOLOR=ivory>" & _
                     "<TD>" & objRec8("CreditDebit") & "</TD>" & _
        "<TD align=right>" & FormatCurrency(objRec8("Amount"),2,-1,0) & "</TD>" & _


Thanks in advance.

Just like the CASE statement in the Oracle solution in your previous question but using IIF instead.

Untested but something like:

tried the following but gave me error

 "<TD align=right>" & FormatCurrency(iif(objRec8("CreditDebit")='C',objRec8("Amount")*-1,objRec8("Amount")),2,-1,0) & "</TD>" & _

Microsoft VBScript compilation error '800a03ea'

Syntax error

"<TD align=right>" & FormatCurrency(iif(objRec8("CreditDebit")='C',objRec8("Amount")*-1,objRec8("Amount")),2,-1,0) & "</TD>" & _

I don't have access to vbscript right now to post a 100% working example.

IIF should be what you need.  You will need to take the syntax for it and apply it to your requirements.

I would start with just getting it to display correctly just with IIF.  Then add formatting with FormatCurrency until you find what is causing the error.

You might need to CAST objRec8("Amount") as a number before doing the multiplication.

I need the correct asp syntax.

I don't have your code and your objects so I cannot provide 100% plug-and-play code.

I provided the link for the correct syntax for IIF.

Take the syntax for IIF and apply it to your code.

Since my untested code generates and error, start making if less complicated until it no longer generates an error.

I would start off removing the formatcurrency call.  If it still generates an error, start removing other pieces.

For example, does the example below generate an error?  It is the simplest IID statement I can make it.

If it runs, then add back in the amount.  This will help you figure out what is causing the issue.

"<TD align=right>" & iif(objRec8("CreditDebit")='C',"C","D") & "</TD>" & _
