Cbyte returns error

I've got a randomizing function which uses the CByte function to convert a random number based on the number of seconds in the time.

This worked perfectly on my development machine Win2000 (IIS5) but returns a type mismatch error on another web server (NT4, IIS4).

Could this be something to do with the way the server is formatting the time?

Yes that is the case , you have to set up your locale-specific settings to match those of your other machine.
You can set the system locale using the Control Panel utilities.

You might find that it differs in the time/date separator ie ':' as opposed to '/' or something trivial like that.

ie make sure that the format being returned by your time function is the same as in your system locale.

I thought as much.  Thanks for confirming though, just saved me a bit of time trying to debug.

I've got it working now.
