And Statement





if var1="w1" or var1="w2" or var1="w3" or var1="w4" or var1="w5" and var2="w1" or var2="w2" or var2="w3" or var2="w4" or var2="w5" then
response.write ("true")
response.write ("false")
end if


I only want to display true if var1 is w1 or w2 or w3 or w4 or w5 AND var2 is w1 or w2 or w3 or w4 or w5

You can see above that var1 is w1 (true) but var2 is e5 (false).

So why does the code above display true. Only one of the conditions is being met!?

Can someone help me. It's probably very simple but I don't get it!

RE: And Statement

You need to bracket the ORs with the AND between the bracketed sets


If (a OR b OR c) AND (d OR e OR f) Then
