I need to create an instance of the ms chart activex component in an asp. I know (i think) i need a line similar to "set mychart = server.creatobject("something")" but I cant work out what the something should be. I've tried the class ID, and the description from the registry, but have had no joy. there must be a way to do this.
please help if you can.

err.. not sure what you mean by that. I'm running IIS4 on NT4, using Visual InterDev.I can create an instance of the control now (using 'set mychart = Server.CreateObject("mschart.chart.1")') but whenever I try to access a method or property I get a 'Catastrophic error'. I've decided not to use msChart now anyway, but would like to launch an exe from the asp on the server (the exe will draw a graph, either gif or jpeg, and save it as a file, then the asp will send the image file down as part of the html.) Any ideas how I can launch an exe from an asp??

Sorry no.  You can try using the shell command, but that probably won't work, ie. x = shell("C:\test.exe").
Or try creating and ActiveX Server on the Server machine that lanches then exe (This is a ActiveX DLL in case you didn't know).
