i have an asp page where if i set strFilePath in the following code to a local path and file (f:\ClinFact\ndc.txt) it works but when i set it to a path and file on another pc (u:\intrnatl\clinfact\ndc.txt) on our novell network i get this message: Server object error 'ASP 0177 :

800a004c' Server.CreateObject Failed

the offending line is the second line below:

Set objFSO = Server.CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set objF = objFSO.OpenTextFile(strFilePath)

my network people tell me that IUSR_machinename of the server has read/write access to u:\intrnatl\clinfact\ and when i log on as IUSR_machinename i can read/write to u:\intrnatl\clinfact\ndc.txt. could this be a netware access rights problem?

Try having your network people assign Read and Write rights for the Public user.  The people using the asp page may not be authenticated to your tree.  The other possible rights issue may be that they need the Create right to that directory.
