I won't go into the gory details of why I need to do things this way, but here's the scenario...<BR>I have two recordsets on the server that I need to get to the client side for data verification. I have converted them into strings with getstring. Then, from the client side, if I do something like this...<BR><BR>clientstring = <%=serverstring%><BR><BR>the string is successfully copied but the rest of the script is ignored. I can't even get a messagebox with "test" to display. (It does if I get rid of the line copying the string.) The only way I've been able to copy all the data successfully is to save the recordsets as xml files and then open them as disconnected recordsets on the client machine. (As an aside, the ADTG format doesn't seem to work quite right in this context either.) Any ideas, suggestions, or comments would be greatly appreciated!!
