Hi,

I am planning to move all my DB related code into a separate file. So i have two files a.asp and b.asp.

a.asp has all the calls to b.asp.

I have all the common code in b.asp.

a.asp
<%@language=vbscript%>
<!--#include file="b.asp"-->
<%
 call hai()
%>

b.asp
<%@language=vbscript%>
<%
 sub hai()
  response.write ("hai")
 end sub
%>

but it throws error in a.asp when i try to call hai(). Let me know what i am doing wrong?

Regards, G

just remove from b file this code <%@language=vbscript%> and when u execute the a page be sure u executed from server not by just click on the page in explorer.  The <!--#include file="b.asp"--> tag is executed on the server. When u execute it from explorer it doesn't run the code.

The extension will not be the problem.

#include is a preprocessor directive. Everything that happens in preprocessing, executes before any VBScript is run. Therefore if you include something which has a line that is required to *only* feature at the top and nowhere else, it'll throw fatal errors like it is.

So, if you need to call the b.asp page on its own, elsewhere, or you include it on every page, you'll need something like this:

a.asp
<!--#include file="b.asp"-->
<%
 call hai()
%>

b.asp
<%@language=vbscript%>
<%
 sub hai()
  response.write ("hai")
 end sub
%>


If your b only containins header functions for one or two pages, you might want to go with something like this:

a.asp
<%@language=vbscript%>
<!--#include file="b.asp"-->
<%
 call hai()
%>

b.asp
<%
 sub hai()
  response.write ("hai")
 end sub
%>

For the second method you might want to name the include file something other than .asp to stop people calling it on its own... .inc is a suitable extension.
