    Re: How does SF6 interpret strings and numbers?

    You have the GOTO *inside* of the IF loop which tests that value to see if it's less than 7. So it won't GOTO if the value is >= 7 because the IF statement tests to 'false'.

    How does SF6 interpret strings and numbers?

    Hello,

    I am pulling the currentVersion registry value for the netscape browser and storing it as a variable. The value returned is "7.01 (en)".

    I then use the Left String function to grab the first string of this variable which is "7".

    I now check this value using the following code:

    IF (%stringResult% < "7")
    IF (%YesNoResult% <> "YES")
    Execute (%SrcDir%\installers\NSSetup8.exe)
    END IF
    GOTO Label(FINISH_BROWSER_CHECKING)
    END IF


    The problem is that when SF6 evaluates the first IF statement AND the %stringResult% >= "7", it never executes the GOTO Label(FINISH_BROWSER_CHECKING) statement.

    Why? Does SF6 interpret strings and numbers the same way? If there a way to convert a string to a number so instead of "7" it is just 7?

    thanks,
