invalid property assignment error

 7:34 pm on Jan 24, 2011 (gmt 0)

Hi All,
I'm getting an "invalid property assignment error" on this small piece of code:

<%=RsNews(RTrim,10("story")) %>

Can anyone see my error?

You probably mean:
<%=RTrim(RsNews("story")) %>

But I don't know what you are trying to do with the ",10"

I'm taking a stab and saying that KRM probably means

<%= mid(RsNews("story"),1,10) %>

It would help if you told us exactly what you're looking to do.;) The code I provided you returns only the first ten characters of RsNews("story").

Hi guys,
Thanks for the replies. It was actually <%= Left(RsNews("storydetails"),100) %> I was looking for to return the first 100 characters of the field. Is that the correct statement?

Thanks :)

That is the correct statement

Yup...that's correct.

The function that I mentioned in my previous post does a fairly similar function. It will return the characters between your start index and length....so to accomplish the same thing you did, you'd use:

<%= Mid(RsNews("storydetails"),1,100)%>
