I have included a file in additionaltoolsmain.asp but my include file path is incorrect.  I just haven't seen it.  Do you know what is wrong with the include line.  When I move the file to the root directory, and
take out the "..\" it works just fine.
root
toolbar.asp
/addtionaltools
/additionaltools/additionaltoolsmain.asp

<!--#include file="..\toolbar.asp"-->

any chance you can use virtual include?

<!--#include virtual="/toolbar.asp"-->    <---this would be if toolbar.asp is in the websites root...

Make sure the include isn't within ASP tags.  Also you should use a forward slash.

<!--#include file="../toolbar.asp"-->

Let me know if you have a question.

If you're using IIS 6.0, you also need to check and ensure you enable include from parent directory, for more info, you can refer to this:
