Creating a hyperlink with a response.write

I have the following code in a table that works fine:

<td width="60"><b><a href="purchase_details.asp?id=<%Response.Write rs3("m_id")%>">View Details</a></b></td>

Open in new window

I want to incorporate into that line an if statement that basically says

if Response.Write rs3("m_status") = "purchased" then do the above code else I want nothing

Open in new window

Thanks in advance for your help

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.
