I have a vb dll that I am accessing through asp.
in the dll I have a public variable.
is it possible to get the value of that variable into the asp page?
what is the call that I have to make?
I do not have a let or get for the variable just declared public

You answered the question yourself, I think.......
As far as i am aware you will need an access method ie a Property which exposes the value, then you just create your object and use the prperty to get the value. I think that is the only way to get it. I could very well be wrong though.

yes, you need to add a public property to the class in your dll

this is generic but you should get the idea

Public Property Get test() As Variant
    If IsObject(mvartest) Then
        Set test = mvartest
        test = mvartest
    End If
End Property
