I'm building a table using fields from an access database.<BR>With netscape empty fields do not get the background border, so I'm trying an IF statement for if the field is empty put in a space or a spacer.gif. But my If statement doesn't run? How do you check for blank fields? My code is:<BR><BR> <td bgcolor="f7efde" align=center><BR> <%= rs1("Comments") %><BR> <% If rs1("Comments") = "" Then %><BR> spacer.gif<BR> <% End if %><BR> </td><BR><BR>I'm sure this is a simple error, I'm new. Thanks for any help in advance!
