I am having troubles finding the right syntax
i have this syntax an it works fine but too many decimal places

response.write("<td align='right'>" + cstr(RS("TRANSPORTPRIS")&"") + "</td>")

I'm tryig to use Formatnumber cant make it work.
Hope someone has a suggestion

Thanks in advance


RE: FormatNumber


I have tried a lot off kombinations
response.write("<td align='right'>" + cstr(RS("TRANSPORTPRIS")&"") + "</td>")
Works fine

Then i tried to kombine it with the FormatNumber

response.write("<td align='right'>" + FormatNumber(cstr(RS("TRANSPORTPRIS"))&""),2 + "</td>")
response.write("<td align='right'>" + Formatnumber(rs("TRANSPORTPRIS"),2) + "</td>")

RE: FormatNumber

FormatNumber requires a number: not a string. So if you want two decimal places, it would be


response.write("<td align='right'>" & FormatNumber(RS("TRANSPORTPRIS"),2) & "</td>") 
The second one should have worked except possibly you used + instead of & for string concatenation. Use + for javascript, & for vbscript.

RE: FormatNumber

Ok there have been used + ind all the other lines
So when I use the (have tried the & as well
response.write("<td align='right'>" + FormatNumber(RS("TRANSPORTPRIS"),2) + "</td>")

I keep getting the error

Microsoft VBScript runtime error '800a000d'

Type mismatch: 'FormatNumber'

RE: FormatNumber

I think RS("TRANSPORTPRIS") returns a string. Try converting it to a double before formatting


response.write("<td align='right'>" & FormatNumber(cdbl(RS("TRANSPORTPRIS")),2) & "</td>") 

RE: FormatNumber

New error

Microsoft VBScript runtime error '800a005e'

Invalid use of Null: 'cdbl'

RE: FormatNumber

Looks like RS(...) is NULL. Check that RS("TRANSPORTPRIS") is not null before writing it.

RE: FormatNumber

it is simple

CODE --> vbscript

if cstr(RS("TRANSPORTPRIS")&"")<>"" then 
response.write("<td align='right'>" &  FormatNumber(cdbl(RS("TRANSPORTPRIS")),2) & "</td>") 
response.write("<td align='right'></td>") 
end if 

RE: FormatNumber

What's wrong with the IsNull() function?

RE: FormatNumber


When I use the code from gk53 everything is workngust fine.

I haven't used th idNumeric() ane IsNull() funktion. I'l try them another day.

Thank you for all the help.

RE: FormatNumber

I use cstr(RS("TRANSPORTPRIS")&"")<>"" becouse isNull check for null value, but will not catch "" value it is not null, so you should have to chack for isNull() and cstr(RS("TRANSPORTPRIS"))<>"" or isNumeric().
IsNumeric() check just for numeric value and if it is null not catching that...
I think
if cstr(RS("TRANSPORTPRIS")&"")<>"" then

simpler then
if ((not isNull(RS("TRANSPORTPRIS"))) and isNumeric(RS("TRANSPORTPRIS"))) then

(extra parenteces just for readability) dazed
