arrClass4 is your array name. You are using it in the loop, we can not see where you created it, just that you are using it. Why you are using an array here I dont understand. In my very first post I gave you the code for your problem, much simpler than what you are using. Did you get this off another forum or is it yours?

You say the data type expected is an integer. Why are you not using the cInt function around the values when you are comparing them? I gave you this:

make sure you are not comparing a string to a integer, Try:
<%if (cint(strSearchClass1)= arrClass4(0,i)) then Response.write " selected " end if %>

Many posts ago. Look up the cInt function, see what it does (as I have explained) and use it if you want to ensure its an integer.

Put it this way. Youe need to print the two values you are comparing, see they are the same, ensure they are the same data types - then it will work. I am unsure what more I can say that I have not.
