i have a varable in the url. but when i come to place this inside a text box every thing after the %20 is lost os theer qa way to force my varable to be a string??
Not quite sure what ur talking about, but make sure your value is in quotes, this can cause the value to be truncated at the first space (%20):<BR><BR><input type=text value="<%=MyVal%>">
<INPUT TYPE = text value="<%=request.querystring("var")%>"& #062;<BR><BR>notice the " around the requested variable!
