Hi.

I have a NT server with IIS4 etc.
I build a web site that use ONLY html, vbscript, asp.
The website is called "Website"
The directory is: "c:\InetPub\wwwroot\Website"

The actual page is "page.asp"

I want to display in the returned file ("page.asp") when the client("slave") asks for "page.asp" to the server ("master") a link only if a specified file is present on the server in "c:\InetPub\wwwroot\Website"
This page is called "present.asp"

If this page exits by a click on this link you'll jump to it
If this page doesn't exist you'll jump to "ouch.asp"

Please ask for more infos if i'm not understandable.

Thanx

arnaudg,
put this into "page.asp":

<%
On Error Resume Next

' See if present.asp has any content:
Set fs = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set ts = fs.OpenTextFile(Server.MapPath("/PathFromTheRoot") + "\present.asp")
txt = ""
txt = ts.ReadLine
ts.Close

' Create Link:
If txt = "" Then
  Response.Write "<a href='ouch.asp'>myLink</a>"
Else
  Response.Write "<a href='present.asp'>myLink</a>"
End If
%>

Thanx for your good answer.

Just one question more.
I tried to put your script as a function.
Function testfile()
.
End Function

And put a onclick="testfile()" in a <A></A> tag.
It doesn't work.

Could you tell me why ?

Thanx again.
