invalid property assignment error KRMwebdesign msg:4257487 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" coderPros msg:4259845 9:25 am on Jan 29, 2011 (gmt 0)
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"). KRMwebdesign msg:4259875 11:31 am on Jan 29, 2011 (gmt 0)
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 :) Staffa msg:4259877 11:59 am on Jan 29, 2011 (gmt 0)
That is the correct statement coderPros msg:4259896 1:47 pm on Jan 29, 2011 (gmt 0)
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)%>
