I am calling data from a database, Access 2000, and placing that data in a form so that the user can update a given record. I use the value statement in the form and connect it to a variable in the following fashion value=<%=strdesc%> and when I pull up the form, if there is a space in the variable strdesc, it will show the text up to the point of the first space. For example, if the database entry for strdesc is Picture Frame, the value in the form will be Picture. If I show the variable strdesc just with a <%=strdesc%> statement in my asp page, it shows up as picture frame. What am I missing. Will the value parameter in a form input statement only show text without spaces in it?
