constants

Hi,

Im using this code in my asp file

<%
cosnt base_Number = 0
const base_Number_One = base_Number + 1
const base_Number_Two = base_Number + 2
%>

When I run this code I get the following error message.

Microsoft VBScript compilation error '800a0415'

Expected literal constant

/myProject/MyAsp.inc, line 9

const base_Number_Two = base_Number + 2
---------------------------------------^

Any Idea why?

From MSDN (VBScript-Const), (note the last sentence)

"You can't use variables, user-defined functions, or intrinsic VBScript functions (such as Chr) in constant declarations. By definition, they can't be constants. You also can't create a constant from any expression that involves an operator, that is, only simple constants are allowed. "
