Hi Old Pedant,
I am all for getting rid of the DrunkWalker code.
What I want to do is simply loop through the database table and those recordsets that have Com_Live = True and then use the value of Article_ID which is a text field to show whether there is a comment been posted to that article or not.
Something like this around each story in the newsletter, minus the code,
if the value of Article_ID = "10-1" than response.write("Read/Write Comments")
ElseIf the value of Article_ID <> "10-1" than response.write("Write a Comment")
Here is a link to the page I am working on
Thanks for your suggestions and help
