Type Mismatch Error

Type mismatch is a general error that happens when you try to stuff one type of value into a variable of another type.

Let's say you are working with numbers, adding and subtracting them. You're working with


And then at some point you say something like

HighVal = "XYZZY"

your operations are soon going to fail with a type mismatch error.

The easiest way to figure out where you went wrong is to do a response.write of each value along the path. That way you can see exactly what each value is set to, and figure out which one is getting in a "bad" value.
