You don't need to use it:

Mid(Temp, I, 1) = Chr("&H" & Mid(HexStr, I * 2 - 1, 2))

This works fine w/out the Val function.

When I said it works fine, I was looking at the right side of the equation (which is fine).  

You can't use Mid() as an assignment in asp.  You'll have to append inside a loop or something similar instead.

For example:

HexStr="414243"
Temp = ""
I = 1
Do While I <= Len(HexStr)/2
   Temp = Temp & Chr("&H" & Mid(HexStr, I * 2 - 1, 2))
   I = I + 2
Loop
Response.Write(Temp)  <--- Produces "ABC"
