ASp pages will not work

By H ·
I'm having trouble get even very simple ASP pages to work. I have IIS4 loaded on a NT Server with service pack 4. I fI use the wizard in Access 97, an ASP page is generated and works fine - allowing me to navigate through the database records. But when I write a simple <%Response.Write ("Hello world") %> ASP page nothing happens.

I get no error messages although debugging is turned on. The directory on the server where the page resides has been given read and execute permissions.

What's going on - it's driving me nuts!!!

If you are using FrontPage (98) uhm you may want to try making the changes to the ASP file in Notepad, simply right mouse click and select Open With..

I have noticed that FrontPage reverts to the saved ASP content if changes aren't made in this way.

Also you may want to visit support.microsoft.com and search the knowledge base.

Throw it away !!! Or if you really insist on keeping it, read the "help" in Access 97.
Way down in a hidden corner it says quite explicitely that you must supply "parameters" before running the wizard. Somewhere in the Menus's there is a Option for"Parameters". Put your "Parameter" in there, and problem solved. Only Access 97 suffers from this, Access 2000 doesn't. I think it's under "tools" but have around. It's called "Parameters" I had same problem, that fixed it. Good Luck

I had problems with this when I first started writing ASP.

1-- Make sure that you are going thru your server and not the path to the saved page. ie., http://myserver/test.asp and not wwwroot/path..../test.asp

2-- Try grabbing some sample pages from somewhere like activeserverpages.com and see if those work.

3-- Try writing a page in Notepad and see if that works.

I know these are pretty basic, but I assumed them when I first started. Sorry if they are too simple.

I have some additional suggestions according to answer 3:
1. in your browser, read the source HTML file, maybe you can find what is the matter.
2. be sure you have added "<%@ LANGUAGE="VBSCRIPT" %>" in your ASP file.
