ASP adrotator component

Im trying to set up the adrotator component as a temporary ad-rotation solution....but am have problems getting the image to link correctly.   Would someone please take a look at www.healdsburgdbd.com (specifically the banner on the main page)?   ASP source for invoking adrotator shown below:

<%
Dim AdVar, AdObj
Set AdObj = Server.CreateObject("MSWC.AdRotator")
AdVar = AdObj.GetAdvertisement("adsched.txt")
Response.Write AdVar
%>

The problem that I saw was the addition of the "image=" in the <A> tag of you ad.  But, the way that you make it go the the correct place is with this ASP code at the top of your page.

<%
GoToURL = Request.QueryString("URL")
If GoToURL <> "" then Response.Redirect GoToURL
%>

This will redirect the page to the appropriate ad page if there is a URL.. obviously, when you load you page, there is no "URL=" in the address string...

As for the image in your <A, I would have to see your actual ASP code that adds the ad to your page.

Already tried this (the response.redirect).  The linked URL is as follows:

http://www.healdsburgdbd.com/?url=http://www.healdsburgdbd.com/advertising&image=ads/youradhere.gif

The fact that the url doesnt include index.asp is what is gumming up the works.  Any thoughts?  My scheduler file is set up correctly (to the best of my knowledge), but if you'd like to take a look, send your email address to adam@chilcote.com.

Thanks.

Add this line to the VERY top of your Ad Rotator Schedule file.

REDIRECT /path/adredirect.asp

Make an ASP page called adredirect.asp in that path and within it, include this:

<%
Response.Redirect(Request.QueryString("url"))
%>
%>

The ASP book I have mentioned something about listing a redirect file in the scheduler header, but never really went into it.

Thanks for the help.

What book do you use?  I use Professional Active Server Pages 2.0 from WQrox Press... It has to be the BEST ASP book I have ever found
