ASP Search problem

P: n/a
Hi, wonder if anyone can help me with this - This was originally a simple
search routine returning results back to itself!
Trying to be smart I tried to combine a no. items per page so I could
limited items displayed...

Okay problem! everything seems to be okay except it is returning no results,
when I know it should
the SQL string appears to be okay and if I remove the search criteria
handlers then it kinda works but still not right!

Can anyone tell me where the problem is - would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance

Lee

Already answered over in .db

Please do not multipost Lee. This is definitely a database-related
question so .asp.db was the perfect group in which to post it. Posting it
here as well did not increase your chances of getting an answer (most of us
subscribe to both groups). On the contrary, if somebody had taken his time
to answer it here, only to find that it was already resolved in the other
group, that person may have been annoyed enough to ignore any future posts
from you, thereby decreasing your chances of getting help in the future.

There are times when you will not be sure which group is most appropriate
(again, this was not one of them), and you will want to post a question to
both groups. In that situation, you should use the cross-posting technique,
rather than posting multiple postings of the same message. To crosspost, put
a semicolon-delimited list of the newsgroups to which you wish to post in
the To: header of your post and post it once. It, and any replies to it,
will appear in all the newsgroups in your list. So, if I reply in .asp.db,
my reply will also appear here in .asp.general.

Unless we go OT and set up a list of those clients with their individual
peculiarities, no.

But I will fight anyone that assumes M$-outlook as the implicit standard.

So I'll just add a footnote that one should use whatever delimiter is
recognized by the news client.

Well, maybe I'm smart enough to concede when I know I'm beaten. :-)

I'll bite. MS-Outlook does not have a newsreader. Perhaps you meant
Outlook Express.

> msimn.exe /outnews = "Microsoft Outlook Newsreader"

msimn.exe is the program name for Outlook Express. The label you mention
above is a misnomer. Outlook is a part of Office, has its own executable
with the filename outlook.exe, and certainly contains no newsreader
functionality whatsoever.

I find it amusing when people spend so much time in here -- obviously they
are using the technology -- yet display their maturity and respect by using
stupid acronyms like "M$"... like their own software companies wouldn't be
interested in making money, or something. It's funny, too, that we talk
about Sybase and MySQL and plenty of other companies with "s" in their
names, who certainly make money from their sotware, and we don't stick a
dollar sign in their names.

No, that's not true. If you're in an Exchange environment, you can setup
newsfeed in Exchange and use Outlook as your news client.

I 100% agree. People who use "M$" are idiots who don't get anything.

You all see the problem of implicitism. Next time I will add express
explicitly.

Anyway it is strange you all are quiveling about that and about the quite
common abbrevation "M$", while not commenting on the bad implicit way
advises are implicidly given assuming the implicid use of an implicid M$
product.

I didn't even realise I was being branded an idiot by occasionally using the
term 'M$' as a common acronym for Microsoft - is this the general consensus
cos I don't feel more stupid than yesterday.

LoL (maybe).
