I am using stringbuilder to generate a listing of program with counts. I placed hyperlink on each program line and when clicked, send to a detail report page of the data. I have all the sytnax working but adding the program name is not coded correctly. I get full link but without the program value sent.
attaching detail doc file.

Do you mean you are not getting a value from reader3("program") at all, or just that the link isn't formed properly?

Looking at your code, i'd think you'd want something more like:
sb1.AppendFormat("<tr><td align=left>{0}</td><td align=center", reader("program"))
sb1.AppendFormat("<a href='top_graph1_b.aspx?program={0}''", reader3("program"))
sb1.Append("style= '" & "color:navy;font-weight:bolder;" & "' >")
sb1.Append(reader3("cntpgm"))
sb1.Append("</a>")
sb1.Append("</td>")
sb1.Append("</tr>")

Open in new window

the link top_graph1_b.aspx?program= is not formed properly. All other code works perfect.

here is final code and works! perfectly.

                sb1.Append("<tr><td align=left>")
                sb1.Append(reader3("program"))
                sb1.Append("</td><td align=center>")
                sb1.AppendFormat("<a href='top_graph1_b.aspx?program={0}''", reader3("program"))
                sb1.Append(" & style= '" & "color:navy;font-weight:bolder;" & "' >")
                sb1.Append(reader3("cntpgm"))
                sb1.Append("</a>")
                sb1.Append("</td>")
                sb1.Append("</tr>")

thx for the format. I tried Appendformat but did not use as you coded.
