I have a script that is as follows:<BR><BR><%<BR>if (info_RS.Fields.Item("ship_date").Value) = "" then<BR>response.write "Awaiting Shipment"<BR>else response.write "Shipped"<BR>end if<BR>%><BR><BR>Problem is that the table appears empty (no data is written to it until the item is shipped), but I get "Shipped" as a response unless I go into the database and delete what appears to be an emtpy value in the ship_date column. What is going on and how can I fix it? <BR><BR>I would prefer not to write data to the table to fix whatever is going on, but I guess I can ad another Sql insert to solve it. Please let me know if there is a better way. Thanks.
