Attaching a word doc in asp email code

I am puzzled experts.

My asp code is dumping the contents of a db file into a word doc and
then creates a file on the web root directory per code below.

Problems I am running are:

1, If I created a field name called filename on the db specifically to be the name of doc file being create.
I then hardcoded the value for this field.
The whole idea is when this file is created on a folder, it will have that name like notify.doc

When I run this one line of code below, I get the error permission denied.

file_being_created= rs("filename") & ".doc"

Microsoft VBScript runtime (0x800A0046)
Permission denied

I don't know why because code below should overwrite a doc file if it already exists.

Set act = fso.CreateTextFile(server.mappath(file_being_created), true)


The other error occurs when I change file_being_created to autonumber on the db.
If I change the file_being_cr
file_being_created= rs("ID") & ".doc"
CDO.Message.1 (0x80070002)
The system cannot find the file specified.



Flds.Update
With iMsg
 Set .Configuration = iConf
     .From = "web Admin <domain.com>"
     .To = "domain.com"
     .AddAttachment("\\dw6\Reports\file_being_created")
     .AddAttachment("\\dw6\Reports\logo.gif")
     .Sender      = "web Admin <domain.com>"
     .Subject     = "New Information"
     .TextBody    = "Attached is a word document added to the database. "
       .Send
End With

Any help would be appreciated.

Do the IUSR_ and IWAM_ accounts have READ/WRITE access to this directory?

hi Fritz!
My response is coming late because I couldn't gain access to our network this past weekend.
So rather than guess an answer to your question, I decided to wait to verify first.
In any case, the answer to your question is yes.
Again, when I use autonumber, instead of the filename I created on the db, I get an error that system could not find file.
I get that error message because the .doc file was not getting created.
If I use the filename, I get an error that permission is denied.
Either way, I am not being allowed to create this file.
Any help in resolving this would be greatly appreciated.
I am giving a demo this pm and so it would be great if I could show them that this is working.

As I said above, if the IUSR and IWAM don't have proper permissions, the file will not get written.

I have given IUSR and IWAM accounts full permissions on everything but yet I still get this error:

Error Type:
CDO.Message.1 (0x80070020)
The process cannot access the file because it is being used by another process.

That is progress, I suppose. At least know the file is being created. Can you verify that is the case by watching the appropriate directory on your server?

Yes, the file is being create.
The hangup now is getting my email program to pick it up and send it out.
That is where the problem is right now.
Thanks for the assistance
