Unanswered: *pls help (3 day bug)* If statement not returning TRUE when it should
I've had this bug for days now, please take a look to see if you can help. Thx
I made an html table to store values that VBscript pulls from an Microsoft Access data base. I modified code from w3school to do this. Here's the link: http://www.w3schools.com/ado/ado_display.asp.
All I change are the path, table, and field names. It works fine; It prints out the DB info in a table.
However, when I add a simple if statement (poined out in the code below) to ensure that the only data that gets printed is that which has the same zip code as the zip code that the user entered into the html field, nothing gets printed. The if statement always evaluates FALSE, even though I've checked the 2 sides of the condition statement, and they match up. Here's the code:
<% Response.Buffer = True %>
set rs = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.recordset")
sql="SELECT zip, email, skills FROM members"
rs.Open sql, conn
zip = rs("zip")
zw = request.querystring("zipWanted")
response.write "zip= " & zip & " zw= " & zw
<table border="1" width="100%">
<%for each x in rs.Fields
response.write("<th>" & x.name & "</th>")
<%do until rs.EOF%>
<%for each x in rs.Fields%>
<%if zip = zw Then <----here's the if statement
