Default Calculator Using Postback - page 256

Having just spent 1+ hours trying to find out why my calculator didn't work I thought I would share this snippet with you other newbies...
In the code below I thought there were 4 number 1's in fact there are only 2, after the workd 'Number' the other 2 are the letter L in lowercase!!!Apply that throughout the rest of the code and hey presto it works!

dblNumber1 = CDbl(Request.Form ("txtNumber1"))

I know it may be elemental for those of you who are experienced but this sort of thing does catch the rest of us out! I am now a much wiser man ...

Hi Iain,

Thanks for pointing this out. I am sure some of the forum's visitors will benefit from this in the future.

The differences between the 1 and the l are indeed hard to spot, both on screen as in print.
