Heres a couple of URLs for you to look over. They appear to be around the subject of VB but Automation can be used in ASP.

E.g. - If I wanted to use Word Automation I would use the below to create an instance of the application.

Set objDoc = Server.CreateObject("Word.Application")

This is early binding - within ASP I don't think you can do late binding (see the articles).

Hope this throws some light on the situation for you.

Early binding essentially means that the addresses of called functions and variables within a library (.lib or .dll) occur when a program is linked.
Late binding means that the addresses are determined at run time (on some systems this means when the program is invoked but on others it means when the particular function or variable is first accessed).

ASP is an interpreted language so as such it does neither. However when the asp.dll that executes the ASP does perform late binding when accessing activeX/Com objects.
