Grab PICKLIST Value URGENT!!!!

Hello i know this is very simple but i am bangging my head....please advise..

 

We have a field called Category which is of type Text. Now the type is changed to picklist.

 

I have an s-Control where i used to grab the Category value.

 

var cate = "{!$User.Category__c}";

 

Now that the field type is changed i am getting the following error

Error: Field Category__c is a picklist field. Use it with an ISPICKVAL() or CASE() function instead.
 
i have searched discussion boards.....but did not find the solution....please help... Thanks in advance

Are you sure this error is in an Scontrol and not in a formula field?
mavsmavs

yes. I am pretty sure.

Again i double checked. The error is showing in scontrol

Maybe you have a Validation Rule on Category that needs to be changed?

Yes, that error is not a Javascript error, it's a formula error -- something's fishy there.
