Error (0x80020009) Exception Occurred when using GetObject

I get this error, I believe, because there is no value being passed to the function.
Here is my code.  I can call this function using VBScript easily when running a VBS but, when I insert into ASP and run from IIS server, I get the error.  After some troubleshooting, it appears that my function isn't receiving the variable that I passed to it.  I tested this by setting the sEMAIL within the function and it runs swimmingly.  This function is defined at the top most portion of my ASP and I call it from further down once I've processed the form properties.  All help is appreciated!!

Function CheckEmail(sEmail)
'      sEmail = "nsmith@me.com"
      dim      SQLQuery, Conn,      rs,      objuser
      SQLQuery = "SELECT name, distinguishedName FROM      'LDAP://DC=nac,DC=me,DC=com' WHERE      objectCategory='Person'      and      objectClass='user' and mail='" & sEmail & "'"
      Set      Conn = CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
      Conn.Provider =      "ADsDSOObject"
      Conn.Open "Active Directory      Provider"
      Set      rs = Conn.Execute(SQLQuery)
      set      objuser      = Getobject("LDAP://" &      rs("distinguishedName"))
      CheckEmail = objuser.mail
end      Function

Here is how I call the function:  
                strsemail = "nsmith@me.com"
      validEmail = ""
      validEmail = CheckEmail(strsemail)
      if validEmail =      "" then
            msgText      = "ERROR! The Supervisor's Email cannot      be validated"
      end      if

Could it be a permissions issue?  Maybe the IUSR_ account doesn't have access to create the object.

You can check it by setting the NTFS permissions on your ASP file so that the IUSR_ doesn't even have read access to it.  Then when you request the page, IIS will prompt the user for a name/password.  Enter the same user information that you use when you run the VBScript and it works.

Then the script will run as that user, and that should have the proper rights.

Hope that helps,

Thanks Dex* but, I don't think that perms are the problem because, as I said, when I set the value within the function, everything works properly.  It seems like the value isn't being passed.

I have seen this problem before, and it is wierd.   But I solved it by adding a byRef to the function parameter.

Function CheckEmail(byref sEmail)

Okay, I misread that...  Yeah, doesn't look like permissions then.

Do you have OPTION EXPLICIT turned on?  Sometimes that helps in finding issues like this.

I would debug it by printing (Response.Write) the value of sEmail inside of the function.  I would also output the value of SQLQuery, just to be extra sure.  And while you're at it, print out the value of rs("distinguishedName") too.

While this won't fix your issue, it will get rid of the error...  You should check the results of "Conn.Execute(SQLQuery)" before issuing the CreateObject command.  I would do this by making sure the value of
   rs("distinguishedName") and making sure it isn't empty.

If that works, then this is really odd.  But in this case, you don't WANT to ByRef, you want ByVal (you should only use ByRef if you want to change the value of the parameter).

If adding ByRef fixes the problem, you should try ByVal too, because that's really what you want.  But in VBS, it defaults to ByVal, so you shouldn't need to specify it.  Very odd.

Yes, as mentioned, its very odd.   I have no explanation why it fixed my problem.

And it only fixed my problem with byref.

Thanks to both of you.  I added the ByRef AND checked the contents of the RS before attempting the LDAP call.  If RS is EOF, then I skip the call and return nothing from the function.  This worked.  So, based upon Dex* suggestion, I removed the ByRef and it is still passing the variable successfully.
Pretty wacky - I don't get it either ...  but, many thanks!

here is the final version of the code:
Function CheckEmail(sEmail)
      SQLQuery = "SELECT name, distinguishedName FROM      'LDAP://DC=nac,DC=me,DC=com' WHERE      objectCategory='Person'      and      objectClass='user' and mail='" & sEmail & "'"
      Set      Conn = CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
      Conn.Provider =      "ADsDSOObject"
      Conn.Open "Active Directory      Provider"
      Set      rs = Conn.Execute(SQLQuery)
      if not rs.eof then
            set objuser      = Getobject("LDAP://" &      rs("distinguishedName"))
            CheckEmail = objuser.mail
      else
            checkEmail = ""
      end if
end      Function
