Including with ASP

I need to build a html-page by putting it together from three diffrent pages. Also, when I call the pages, I must be able to use a varialbe.

To include files I know I can use:
<!-- #include file ="G:\xxxx\xxxx.inc" -->

but what should I do if I want to something like this:
<!-- #include file = "G:\xxx\<%=variable%>\xxxx.asp -->

To use the include files, you have to know the path before hand, so you cannot include it with the vairale.  But, you could do something like this. Include a file called g:\xxx\redir.asp and within that file, get the variable and then rdirect to the appropriate page.  That is theonly way that I see that will work.

Another solution could be the conditional Include.
Write a If...else or switch and check for various values of the variable and write the include accordingly. like this...

<% if var = "var1" then %>
<!-- #INCLUDE file="var1.inc"-->
<% elseif var = "var2" then %>
<!-- #INCLUDE file="var2.inc"-->
<% elseif var = "var2" then %>
<!-- #INCLUDE file="var3.inc"-->
<% else %>
<!-- #INCLUDE file="nothing.inc"-->
<% end if %>
