HTML TextArea with ASP
I am trying to do a check to see if a value of one of my fields is a certain number. If it is I want to display a form text entry box, if not skip it. I want to put a value of another field in the text entry box so the user can edit/update the info. I have the code to display or not display, but when I try to display the value in the text entry field, I get quotes around it. My syntax is below.
Response.Write("<td> <textarea name=""cStatUnit1"" cols=""70"" rows=""10"">"""&rstblrinews.Fields.Item("cStatUnit1").Value&"""</textarea>")
If I take a " from each side of the variable, it does not work, like this it displays the date with " around the text. Can someone please help me figure how to get this displayed without quotes?

The problem is you have to many quotes going on. You have the value inside quotes so therefore it's going to display inside quotes.
Try this on for size.
Response.Write("<td> <textarea name=""cStatUnit1"" cols=""70"" rows=""10"">" & rstblrinews.Fields.Item("cStatUnit1").Value& "</textarea>")

I prefer writing asp tags inside html code, instead of writing html codes using response.write. My code would be:
Oh! BTW, hello everyone. This is my first post to the forums. I am an absolute begginer in MySQL and ASP.
<td><textarea name='<%= cStatUnit1 %>' cols='70' rows='10'> <%= rstblrinews.Fields.Item("cStatUnit1").Value %></textarea>
Sweet smell of a great sorrow lies over the land. Plumes of smoke rise, merge into the leaden sky. A man lies and dreams of green fields and rivers, but awakes to a morning with no reason for waking. He's haunted by the memory of lost paradise. In his youth or dream, he can't be precise. He's chained forever to a world that's departed. It's not enough, it's not enough.
