I am able to pull user information as folks access my web page on the intranet. I have a page I want to restrict access to so that only those that have a userid that starts with the letter "u" are able to open it. What is the easiest way to do that.

if userID is a variable, you can do something like this:

if Lower( Left( userID, 1 ) ) = "u" then
      '-- user has access
else
       '-- user doesn't have access, maybe do a redirect to another page
       Response.Redirect "someOtherPage.asp"
end if

sorry, Lower should be LCase, brain fart there. also, if userID is blank or null, you'll get an error, so if thats a possibility, make sure you check for it

Ok now I am trying to work out this error:

The HTTP headers are already written to the client browser. Any HTTP header modifications must be made before writing page content

I have gone as far as moving everything to before the HTML tag but still get this error.

   <%
Response.Buffer = True
%>
			<%
			
			if LCase( Left( vUID, 1 ) ) = "u" then
                    '-- user has access
                    Response.Clear
                    Response.Redirect "EffDash.asp"
                    
        Response.End
          
 end if %>

Open in new window

the code you have will redirect if the userID begins with the letter "u", is that what you want?

there is no error listed above...

yes that is what I want but if I try to use the code as in your response using the LCase if statement I get the error
