I am working in asp and using sql server 7. I have a section where the input is to long to use a char field so i had to set the field as ntext. Now i am trying to do a section where i wanna look and see if the field is null and if not then it is to perform an operation. If it is null it is to skip and go to the next field in the record. However it is not performing this operation. It sees the first field and does pass the second one because it is null. If i put in a character into the field it will go on until it gets to a null again and then stops. Any suggestions?
