If databasefield "soll_uitgenodigd" AND databasefield "soll_afgewezen" are both empty, I like to response write an alternate text. Below code only the "ja" and "nee" code is working:

          <% If  (rsSolliOverzicht.Fields.Item("soll_uitgenodigd").Value) = "ja" Then %>
          <span class="toptabGROEN">JA</span>
		  <% End If %>
          <% If  (rsSolliOverzicht.Fields.Item("soll_afgewezen").Value) = "ja" Then %>
          <span class="toptabROOD">NEE </span>
          <% End If %>
          <% If (rsSolliOverzicht.Fields.Item("soll_afgewezen").Value) = "" AND (rsSolliOverzicht.Fields.Item("soll_uitgenodigd").Value)= "" Then %>
          <span>geen reactie</span>
		  <% End If %>

Anyone?

if you refer to "empty", it is probably rather "null" than that string value...
anyhow, you may want to do like this (or some other method, for example keeping a boolean value within the if or else stuff ...
          <% If  (rsSolliOverzicht.Fields.Item("soll_uitgenodigd").Value) = "ja" Then %>
          <span class="toptabGROEN">JA</span>
		  <% End If %>
          <% If  (rsSolliOverzicht.Fields.Item("soll_afgewezen").Value) = "ja" Then %>
          <span class="toptabROOD">NEE </span>
          <% End If %>
          <% If (rsSolliOverzicht.Fields.Item("soll_afgewezen").Value) <> "ja" AND (rsSolliOverzicht.Fields.Item("soll_uitgenodigd").Value) <> "ja" Then %>
          <span>geen reactie</span>
		  <% End If %>

<%
dim soll_afgewezen, soll_uitgenodigd
soll_afgewezen=""
soll_uitgenodigd=""
if not isnull(rsSolliOverzicht.Fields.Item("soll_afgewezen").Value) Then
	soll_afgewezen=rsSolliOverzicht.Fields.Item("soll_afgewezen").Value
end if
if not isnull(rsSolliOverzicht.Fields.Item("soll_uitgenodigd").Value) Then
	soll_uitgenodigd=rsSolliOverzicht.Fields.Item("soll_uitgenodigd").Value
end if
if soll_uitgenodigd="ja" Then
	response.write "<span class=""toptabGROEN"">JA</span>"
end if
if soll_afgewezen="ja" Then
	response.write "<span class=""toptabROOD"">JA</span>"
end if
if soll_afgewezen="" and soll_uitgenodigd="" Then
	response.write "<span>geen reactie</span>"
end if

%>

But what happens if soll_afgewezen="ja" and soll_uitgenodigd=""? or the other way around.

@ Guy Hengel [angelIII / a3]: sorry but the same results I had before.
@ Scott Fell (padas): Thank you man, this works for me (except you used 2x "ja" instead of "ja" and "nee", but that was just a typo :)
