Expected end of statement-- ASP

Hi,

I am making a program in ASP

Which will browse into the directory and filter image files. We should be able to delete those images

I got some code from below URL

http://www.asp101.com/articles/john/imageviewer/default.asp

I used the code, but I get the error:


Technical Information (for support personnel)

Error Type:
Microsoft VBScript compilation (0x800A0401)
Expected end of statement
/ASPImageProject/browsedir1.asp, line 60, column 28
objFile.Type = "JPEG Image" Then
---------------------------^


Browser Type:
Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1; SV1; .NET CLR 2.0.50727)

The code in the above URL is below. I get the same type of code in many other sites but all give the same errors

Please guide

The problem is that these lines:
      ' Original image file identification option:
      'If objFile.Type = "GIF Image" Or _
            objFile.Type = "JPEG Image" Then

should be only two:
      ' Original image file identification option:
      'If objFile.Type = "GIF Image" Or objFile.Type = "JPEG Image" Then

The last line is a continuation of the one before it, that's why the one before it ends in "_", meaning "this statement continues on the next line

If you really want to keep it in three lines, you need to comment the last line as well by prexing it with an apostrophe. Otherwise the system will try to execute that line by itself (like it is doing now) and will give you the error because Then is NOT tied to an If clause since the If is commented. Again, if you want it in three lines, this is what you need:
      ' Original image file identification option:
      'If objFile.Type = "GIF Image" Or _
      '      objFile.Type = "JPEG Image" Then
0

Could you try again without breaking the IF statement into two lines....e.g.

If objFile.Type = "GIF Image" Or  objFile.Type = "JPEG Image" Then
0
