Hi Rob, My first inclination was to point a finger at the difference in case: recordset1.Fields.Item("ProdPDFURL2").value vs. Recordset1.Fields.Item("ProdPDFURL2").Value ... but I really don't think that's the issue. Can you check the db entry in hex? I'm wondering if you've got one of Joel's invisible elves, (transparent end of line character), embedded into the entry in the db field. That would do it to ya ... and leave you scratching your head wondering what's going on. HTH, RonL. (Oh! Actually I *am* 'Maleficent'-enabled. ;-) I hung my Maleficent (Disney) ornament [ http://store3.yimg.com/I/ftcollect_1714_18202837 ] on the tree last week!) -----Original Message----- From: Rob Smith [mailto:rob.smith at THERMON.com] Greetings oh non-maleficent ones, These are the contents of the cell: ----416 Chars This is what is displayed: ----258 Chars This is the ASP i'm using to call the cell: <% if NOT isNULL(recordset1.Fields.Item("ProdPDFURL2").value) then %> • <%=(Recordset1.Fields.Item("ProdPDFURL2").Value)%><br> As you can see, the cell did not completely print out. What am I missing?
