I'm using MS Frontpage to create a website and need some extra things in there.  So I'm putting in some VB Script code.  I wanted to know how can I debug the VB Script?  It doesn't seem like I can do it with Frontpage.  Do I have to do it in another program and if so which one.

Thanks in advance for the help.

I usually Put the VBScript code then save the page and run it. When you have a problem,  Internet explorer will display the error and let you know in which line it is.

I always correct the problem this way.

Hi again,

Also,  I do it in front page:

I open the page in HTML mode click once inside it,  then click Tools/Macro/Microsoft Script Debugger.

This is a very good debugger.

Hhammash thanks for the quick response.  I didn't know that Frontpage had a VB Script editor in there.  I loaded it up and starting debugging some stuff.  Although I have to say it's weird that you have to use F11 instead of F8 like in VB and Access to debug code.  But it is Microsoft after all.

Thanks again.
