Title

String Comparisons

Post

     I'm trying to compare 2 text global fields:

     VMSG::gTemp_Active = "Active"

     VMSG::gTemp_Current_Status = "Inactive"

     If (VMSG::gTemp_Active = VMSG::gTemp_Current_Status)

          Show Custom Dialog displaying the field values

     End If

     - The dialog box opens an shows the values of "Active" and "Inactive" yet they compared as equal????

     It appears that the comparison is being done on a substring.  Is that the case? How can I do an exact comparison?

      

     I tried setting 2 variables to the values in the global fields and doing the same comparison.  Same result.

      

     I tried just doing:

     If ("Active" = "Inactive")

          Custom Dialog

     End If

     No dialog box as it should be.

      

     What am I missing here?
