formatting error

formatting error

(OP)
Hello,

I am trying to format a null field so I came up with the code below, it looks ok to me but it is giving me an error

this is my code

CODE

strValue = "<a target=_blank href='http://mywebsrv/sales_list.asp?mastertable=Daily&masterkey1="& data("tddt") &" '>"("0" & data("Sales"),2) &" </a>" 

this is the error I get

CODE

Error Type:
Microsoft VBScript runtime (0x800A000D)
Type mismatch: '[string: "'>"]' 

RE: formatting error

Use

CODE --> (ASP)

" & chr(34) & " 


instead instead of throwing the odd single quote here and there.

RE: formatting error

Guessing, but is this what you were going for?

CODE

strValue = "<a target=_blank href='http://mywebsrv/sales_list.asp?mastertable=Daily&masterkey1="& data("tddt") &" '>" & Right("0" & data("Sales"),2) &" </a>"
