I get the error:
Active Server Pages error 'ASP 0241'

CreateObject Exception


The CreateObject of '(null)' caused exception C0000005
 When using a vb application to read an asp page. I use this app to parse data from the page and load it into a sql server database. This has worked flawlessly for over a year, and suddenly today I am getting these errors. Any ideas. I have tried rebooting the server. The asp page is read from a remote link. Could that be where the problem is?
Thank you.

    Hello chantalcookware,

    this is an error occuring on the remote site where the asp page is running, maybe they are working on it
    if you paste the link in the browser and request it that way instead of through the vb app there should be an error too
