if statement hiding more than it should....

Hey Ray

On this page there should be 3 case studies visible but only 2 are showing.

In the back end, I have a testimonials section which is standalone in its own rght as well as a case study section which also includes a drop down where the user can select a testimonial they want to associate with the case study.

In the drop down, 'no testimonial' = 0 whilst the list of testimonials, if selected, will add their TestimonialID value from the testimonial table into the case_study column CaseTestimonialID

On the front end, the odd thing that is happening is if the casestudy CaseTestimonialID = 0, then the whole case study does not show when all t shold be doing is hiding the empty elements of the testimonial.

Have attached the page

cool story bro

You have to use a LEFT OUTER JOIN instead of INNER JOIN in your recordset if you want it to return all the rows from the first table even if there is no matching row in the second.
