VPath not appearing from asp search script results

Hi all,
        I have been trying to make this asp search script display the VPath to its results and cannot seem to make it work.  Here is the background.  I have created a site on my win2k server and IIS.  The site created is not local it is on a remote server \\servername\share_name.  The site contains word, ppt and other types of documentation.  I next created a new index via the indexing svc on the IIS box specific to the site in question.  I am pretty sure that all necessary steps are done.  

The ASP script runs fine and returns results to queries.  However, the VPath is unavailable.  If I use the search tool from within the indexing service and query the index it returns with info and a VPath in this format \\servername\sharename\filename.

Is there a way the when the query results are returned, to make the VPath appear?  Here is a link to a text versions of the script:

It would be really great if I can make this work, so that remote offices I work with can search for documents via the internet.

    I found the answer to my own question with the help of a firend....

    ' Output the field value as table data.

          'if objField.Name <> "Path" then
          if strComp(objField.Name, "Path", 1) <> 0 Then
          Response.Write "<td>" & strValue & "</td>" & vbCrLf
          'Response.Write "<td><a href=\"" & strValue & "\">" & strValue & "</a></td>" & vbCrLf
          Response.Write "<td><a href='" & strValue & "' target='_blank'>" & strValue & "</a></td>" & vbCrLf
          End If
