Hi everyone,<BR><BR>I&#039;m having a problem with this tablecell:<BR><BR>&#060;asp:tablecell ID="age" runat="server"&#062;&#060;%=age%&#062;&#060;/asp:tablecell&#062;<BR><BR>I have an aspx page that I want to use an asp code to fill disply some text in a tablecell, and then retrieve the text in the tablecell to insert it into a database. I used this code to retrieve the text:<BR> <BR>Dim strAge as string = age.text<BR><BR>But when I run it, it gave me an error saying that the "age" field can not be a zero length string. When I change the asp code "&#060;%=age%&#062;" to some normal text, the page work fine. <BR><BR>But I don&#039;t want the normal text to fill the cell, I want the asp code to fill the cell. So if some one know how to solve this problem please help me. Thank yo very much for reading.<BR><BR>Vo
