If rec.Account > GLAcctNo6 Then I get "¦¦¦¦¦¦¦¦"

If rec.Account > GLAcctNo6 Then I get "¦¦¦¦¦¦¦¦"

If rec.Account > GLAcctNo6 Then I get "¦¦¦¦¦¦¦¦"

I am writing VB6 program that reads a Btrieve file.  I am having a problem in the logic when I attempt to use the following logic:

If rec.Account > GLAcctNo6 Then

Even though I have successfully read a record it does not display a value in rec.Account.  It only displays "|||||||||||||||"

Any help would be much appreciated.

RE: If rec.Account > GLAcctNo6 Then I get "¦¦¦¦¦¦¦¦"

Looks a bit odd, I'm assuming you're accessing your data through a ddf.  Could it be that the account field is not defined as the right type?  Could it be that maybe in the ddf it's a char but it's real value is something else?

Sorry I can't be more help.....
