ASP Javascript "IF" Syntax

This should be a simple one.

I am trying to add an IF statement using ASP/Javascript

<% if (Permissions.SecBillingedit)== "True" { %>

MY CODE

<% } // end Permissions.EOF && Permissions.BOF %>

Where permissions is the recordset and SecBillingedit is the field value

ASP and JavaScript are separate entities - they cannot talk to each other per se.
ASP is executed on the server, sends the HTML the browser and that is that - ASP is finished with it
Js is used in the browser.

Ok .. ASP .. whats the correct syntax for the above ?
GaryCommented:
I don't know because I have no idea what you are trying to do
Are you trying to add a js function into the page if the condition is true?
Is this classic ASP or .net?

Seems like you need server-side "JScript" which is similar to Javascript and needs parentheses around the entire if expression:
<% if ((Permissions.SecBillingedit)== "True") { %>

You don't hear much about jscript.  Serverside javascript is starting to come in vogue. Too bad this was never developed more. But it does run slower compared to serverside vbscript for similar functions.  If you can do a function client side, it will run significantly faster.

Thats ok, in the future will be turned to ASP/VBscript.
