There is a script debugger, which is part of the Internet Information Server 4, this is available in the option pack at http://backoffice.microsoft.com/downtrial/optionpack.asp

This should do what you want. You should note that IIS4 is in beta, so it is not recomended that you use it on your main web server yet.

Sorry I should have noted that this is on IIS 3 on NT 4.0.  Since IIS 4.0 isn't out yet, I didn't think it was necessary in my original message.

I highly recommend the built-in script debugger in Visual InterDev from Microsoft. Once you load your code into it and attempt to 'preview' the file in the internal or external browser, the asp error message will appear. This message will describe the nature of the error and the line number. Hit Ctrl+G to go to the line number in question.
