How can I get the HTML code at the end of an ASP from the server's buffer in order to be able to record it in a file on the Server?

You can write all your HTML code to a string variable (your own buffer). At the end you save that string to a file using the filescriptingobject. Then you do a Response.write(string).
Does this help you?

Julio, it appears you want to do exactly what I told you. Only question is if you want to send to the client the entire result at once, or in chunks.

AnitaP: I don't know if he speaks Spanish or Portuguese, but fortunately I learnt Latin;)
"It's necessary to capture the HTML code generated by the ASP DLL to save it on file."
I think he wants to have an archive of pages shown to user. Don't ask why;-)

Be careful: don't confuse client (customer) and server (ASP/mail)!
So you have variables that contain the choices of the customer. Also, you can make an HTML file of them. That's what you got so far, right?
Instead of writing the HTML directly to the client, save it to a string (e.g. result = result & "<B>100</B>"). When finished, you write the entire string to file. Then you can mail that file or do with it whatever you want.
If that's what you want, but you don't know how to write the resulting string to a file on your server by way of ASP, ask me here.

If you obtain the IIS Rersouce Kit (from Microsoft) it includes on the CD the software that grabs the HTML produced by from the ASP so that it can be cached.

I presume that this is done by writing an ISAPI DLL that hooks into the HTML/ASP parsing (this is how you would do this sort of thing on most other servers).

Of course you have the right to not want to save the code in an intermediate variable, but it's not difficult at all. In fact, I always store the code in a variable, because it's easier to debug and mix in other variables.
The advantage of this approach is that you can execute the mail component from the very same page.
