FIELD command

FIELD command

FIELD command

I'm using Vignette 6.0
I have a question about the FIELD command.
I'm searching the table for some values and then i show them in the table on the page. If the values are not there i need to still have the rows in the table but with nothing in them, i can't figure out how to do that.
Here is what i'm doing:

SELECT something1, something2 FROM table_name
WHERE some_field = 'somevalue'    ORDER BY some_field"]

Then i can either do a [FOREACH ROW IN $findTemp ...]
of i can check if the $findTemp is empty or not.

My question is, if something2 is empty, how can i check it with FIELD or any other command?        

RE: FIELD command

How 'bout-

[FOREACH ROW IN $findTemp {
[IF ([FIELD something2]=="") {
[SET something2var " "]
} ELSE {
[SET something2var [FIELD something2]]
... <td>[SHOW something2var]</td>

RE: FIELD command

kotaro, what exactly do you mean? even if a database row is EMPTY, FIELD doesn't break when you do a [FIEDL something]
