elp with filtering data in table

Hi,

How do you modify the code below to filter data if RIC = 'N/A' or is null, code below does not work.

 Dim SearchCriteria As String = "RIC <> ' '" 'or RIC <> 'N/A'"
            Dim FilteredDTA As DataTable
            Dim DVA As New DataView(dtsetLinkAOP6A.Tables(0), SearchCriteria, Nothing, DataViewRowState.CurrentRows)

Open in new window


Thanks,

Victor

Try this:
Dim SearchCriteria As String = "ISNULL(RIC, 'N/A') = 'N/A'"

Hope that helps.

Sorry, I think you try to get the records where RIC is not null nor 'N/A'. In that case:

Dim SearchCriteria As String = "ISNULL(RIC, 'N/A') <> 'N/A'"

Hi,

I tried the code but I still get records with blank values.

The blank values are blankspaces or are null?

Try this:
Dim SearchCriteria As String = "(ISNULL(RIC, 'N/A') <> 'N/A') AND (LEN(LTRIM(RTRIM(ISNULL(RIC, 'N/A')))) <> 0)"
