Hi I have a decrypt function that I wrote that takes the value of a value and decrypts it. My simple problem is that I take the string and put "" & value & "" on each side because the decrypt function decrypts strings. Is there a way to do a "toString" sort of method in ASP like I can do in Java? I would like to simply call value.toString so the function knows I'm passing as string as opposed to any thing else. And those double quotes might not be obvious to another developer.
