IF display not working

I am using classic ASP / javascript

I have the following lines:

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

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

It should display the value when 'secbillingedit' is equal to "True", but it doesnt. What is wrong ?

If I display the value of the field in on my screen  I get "True" ... so not sure what may be wrong.

if the database field is a boolean type, you just want to do:

<% if ( Permissions.SecBillingedit ) { %>

your original code is comparing the field to a string value of "True", not a boolean value

The <% and %> should be around the entire if statement, not each line.

no, thats inccorect. The <% %> can (and should be) on each line, especially if the part where the OP has VALUE is straight up html

Did not work. Nothing is displayed. It shoud compare and make sure the boolean value is '1' .. in the database it shows '1', but when displayed on the ASP page it shows "True"

The logic is correct, the 'value' or code I want to display is still not being displayed.

This is the complete code :

<% if ((Permissions.SecBillingedit)== "1") { %>

                          <a href="BillingItemsEdit.asp?ItemId=<%=(BillingItems.Fields.Item("Id").Value)%>&caseid=<%=(Casesjoin.Fields.Item("Id").Value)%>"><img src="../../Images/iedit.gif" width="16" height="16" border="0"></a>
                           
<% } // end Permissions.EOF && Permissions.BOF %>

I have tried and doesnt work with:

<% if ((Permissions.SecBillingedit)== "1") { %>
<% if ((Permissions.SecBillingedit)== "True") { %>
<% if ((Permissions.SecBillingedit)== '1') { %>
<% if ((Permissions.SecBillingedit)== 'True') { %>

Close enough, this worked:

<% if (Permissions('SecBillingedit')== "1") { %>

just to confirm, the database field "SecBillingedit" IS of a boolean type?

are you referencing that field any where else on the page?
