Hi all,

I have an asp page with the following codes:

Dim obj1
Set obj1 = Server.CreateObject("ASPFormat.Format")

The page is on IIS of Windows 2000. When I open that page, it shows error:

Error Type:
Server object, ASP 0177 (0x800401F3)
Invalid ProgID. For additional information specific to this message please visit the Microsoft Online

Please help me to fix it. Thanks.

Do you have the component in which the ASPFormat.Format is defined (ASPFormat.dll?) installed on your server?

ASPFormat does not come with ASP or Windows, so if you (or your Admins) have no awareness of having installed it, it's probably not there.

You'll need to download it from someone who's made one (such as from the Download link at the end of http://www.4guysfromrolla.com/webtech/051601-1.shtml) and install/register it on your server.
