I'm pulling 3 columns using a left outer join, one column maybe null because of the join. I try and add logic like If rs("3col") = "Null" then sCol = "0". I have an include page with a sub that reads this value and writing out sCol still gives "". If I add logic in that sub to say if sCol = "" then write out a couple test lines, it doesnt write the test lines. What is the deal with this?
