Function works in ASP, but Type Mismatch in VBScript??

Hi Experts,

I have a function that I can get to work fine in ASP, but when I try to call it from a script (vbscript) it doesn't work??
Error is Type Mismatch
If I remove the brackets it gives me Object Expected
If I add "" around the function variable same error

If you could let me know what the problem might be?

Thanks in advance...

sure, the code when you call function is client script, (like javascript)
So you cant call the server script (your function)
Take a look at ajax to solve it
