Hello Experts!


I am creating a .txt file in ASP using this;

CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
CreateTextFile("c:\somefile.txt")

...I am on a webhotel though and need to make the path like if so;

"/texts/group1/text1.txt"

What then would be like; "www.mysite.com/texts/group1/text1.txt"

How do I do that??

Thank you!

/Jens

Use Server.MapPath() method

like

Server.MapPath("texts/group1/text1.txt")

Thank you!
I still have a small problem.

how do I write the entire line?

Set tfile=fs.CreateTextFile Server.MapPath("texts/group1/text1.txt")

Gives me an error.

How is the right way??

Where is your file which should create file?
/texts/  ?? or some other directory..

for example if you are here

root/
        file.asp
and text file should be created here
root/texts/group1/text1.txt

Set tfile=fs.CreateTextFile Server.MapPath("texts/group1/text1.txt") this should work..

if other you can use ../ etc to point to right place,

and anyway, which error it does give? path not found?

Use paranthesis

Set tfile=fs.CreateTextFile(Server.MapPath("texts/group1/text1.txt"))

also give the write permission to group1 folder
