syntax error on ASP ?

I have two session variables and I want to display region A if the value of both is the same
And if the value of both is differnent then display region B

Somehow I am getting an error, I checked the value for both and both sessions have value =  31809

I get an error on the first line of the code below:

<% If Session("QnrUserId") = Session("Qnrmainuserid") Then %>
REGIONA
<% End If ' %>
<% If Session("QnrUserId") <> Session("Qnrmainuserid") Then %>
REGION B
<% End If ' %>

Open in new window


I am not sure what the problem is with the syntax if any. I get the following error:

Microsoft VBScript runtime error '800a000d'

Type mismatch

/bluedot/questionnaire/qnr_08.asp, line 190 

Open in new window


line 190 is the first line on the code above.

which of those lines is line 190?

anyhow, what about using "else" in this context?

<% If Session("QnrUserId") = Session("Qnrmainuserid") Then %>
REGIONA
<% Else  %>
REGION B
<% End If %>

Open in new window

I also notice some trailing quotes (after end if) in the posted code, that might also be the issue
what are the values of those session values?

As I mentioned, the first line is line 190

This is line 190:  <% If Session("QnrUserId") = Session("Qnrmainuserid") Then %>

I am not sure why even with the else I get the error:

Microsoft VBScript runtime error '800a000d'

Type mismatch

/bluedot/questionnaire/qnr_08.asp, line 190

Both sessions exist and both have the same numeric value

If I display the value on the page I get this:

qnruserid = 31809
qnrmainuserid = 31809

please output the typename(Session("QnrUserId") ) and typename(Session("Qnrmainuserid") ) for debugging. at some point, it must be different data types, or another line of code, otherwise the message would not make any sense...

I understand and if you read above that is what I did, both have the same value  =  31809
Is it possible the problem is actually on a different line ?

I will use a work around. for some reason if I log out then log in the page works fine, but not if I create the user and go to that page directly.
Thanks for the 'else' tho  :)

then it was likely null values / nothing objects ...
