VBScript&ASP: want to check the existence of a file on the server !

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

A+rno

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.
