I have this ASP page where I have an

<%
On Error GoTo ProcError

ASP code goes here....

ProcError:
  Session("objConn").RollbackTrans
  Session("objConn").Close
%>

Everytime I view this page in a browser, I get this error:

      VBScript error - Syntax Error on line 1

Line 1 pertains to the 'On Error GoTo ProcError'

I could not decipher why this is happening.  Thank you for your help.

My first guess would be that you could only use a lable, such as ProcError:  inside of a public sub or function. (that is, if you can use lables in ASP at all... you might try:

<%
Public Sub DoIt()
On Error GoTo ProcError

ASP code goes here....

ProcError:
 Session("objConn").RollbackTrans
 Session("objConn").Close
End Sub

DoIt

%>

(opps, forgot the Exit Sub, this may post twice)

 Exit Sub
ProcError:

You cannot use on error goto in ASP, only resume next.

  response.write err.description
  response.end
end if

I tried that and the syntax error went away.  Thank you.

However, whenever I encounter an error, the check for the error.value does not work; for some reason, I am not capturing the error.  I found this out when I put a display of the error code - it skipped the check for error value because the error code did not get displayed.

I will have to try something else.
