Building a dynamic external link in ASP

Hi all,

I have a small function which returns a dynamically built href= (Link). However, when I vew the results in the browser it looks different than it ought to ;-)
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

strURL = "xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx.com/"
Code_GD_Protocol = "http://www."
strPP_AND_LA_URL = "Privacy-Policy-and-Legal-Advice-es.asp"

ReturnSubFoldersNames(NumSiteID) ... Returns a valid folder name. This has worked for years!


Str_LegalTextBoth = "<a class=""PrivacyPolicyText"" href="""&Code_GD_Protocol&strURL&"webs/"&ReturnSubFoldersNames(NumSiteID)&"/"&strPP_AND_LA_URL&""">"& strBothLegPrivi&" </a>"

View source code and this is what I get:
href="webs/abogados-de-nuevas-tecnologias/Privacy-Policy-and-Legal-Advice-es.asp"

It seems to have stripped everything before the "webs/" bit.

Any ideas?

kind regards

Try using
href=""
not
href="""
Str_LegalTextBoth = "<a class=""PrivacyPolicyText"" href=""&Code_GD_Protocol&strURL&"webs/"&ReturnSubFoldersNames(NumSiteID)&"/"&strPP_AND_LA_URL&"">"& strBothLegPrivi&" </a>"

No, that turns the variable 'Code_GD_Protocol' into a string.

The problem only seems to occur when the link is rendered above root level. At root level the very same code works correctly.

No, and certainly not for this bit. I use Dreamweaver for some design but this link has been hard coded.
