instr(str, "%>") not works

instr(str, "%>") not works

instr(str, "%>") not works


In ASP code, I tried to find the position of "%>" in a string str:
instr(str, "%>")
but got error.
I know a "%>" is in the string and the string is from a text file.

Do you know what is the problem?

RE: instr(str, "%>") not works

"error" isn't enough information. Posting better info reults in better answers.

%> is the ASP code terminator. I'm guessing that is where your code is stopping.

You might try:
instr(mystring, CHR(37))

RE: instr(str, "%>") not works

Yes, that is !! Thanks a lot.
