Trying to Convert ASP Script to DLL

I am trying to convert ASP code into a DLL.

The ASP file is a large function and it contains several steps, some of which call other subroutines and functions located in a separate include file elsewhere.

I moved the code into Visual Studio, changed it to a public function, and added As String to the Dims. When I try to make the DLL, I get an error "Sub or function not defined," and it points to the first subroutine that exists in the separate include. What do I need to do to get it compiled? I would prefer not to copy the subs and functions into the DLL itself, but this is my first DLL, and I'm not sure how to reference external files. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

A little more info to add:

The architecture is such: default.asp calls process.asp; process.asp contains code that references the function inside the DLL as well as an include reference to the external ASP include file with the various subroutines and functions.

Hi stribble,

I'm sorry but you must copy all functions and subs inside DLL. You can access Session, Application, and other objects and variables from ASP through GetObjectContext function. Take a look here

Be carefully and check DLL functions becase VBScript and VB is not exactly the same. Some time ago I did something like you, and I had a lot of problems with string handling functions, because behaviour changed a little, but enough for need of a lot of testing and debugging.

Good luck

Cheers
