Can anyone please tell me what I need to set the value of the hidden field CPUName to get it to have it show the CompName variable?? Thanks. Jon

   Dim DNS
   Dim IP
   Dim CompName

   Set DNS = Server.CreateObject("ASPDNS.DNSLookup")
   IP = (Request.ServerVariables("REMOTE_ADDR"))
   CompName = DNS.GetNameFromIP(IP)
   Response.Write "At Computer Name: " & CompName
   <input name="CPUName" type="hidden" value="'(CompName)'" />

Give this a shot.
I do not have that component so I cannot fully test it.

Good Luck

Thanks, I get this error:

Microsoft VBScript compilation error '800a0400'

Expected statement

/TimeClock_PunchIn.asp, line 150

<input name="CPUName" type="hidden" value="'& (CompName) &'"/>

See if you get the error with this?

Run the code and click the button
<form method="post">
<input type="hidden" name="Hello" value="Carrzkiss" />
<input type="submit" />
</form>
<%
   Dim DNS
   Dim IP
   Dim CompName
 
  ' Set DNS = CreateObject("ASPDNS.DNSLookup")
  ' IP = (Request.ServerVariables("REMOTE_ADDR"))
   'CompName = DNS.GetNameFromIP(IP)
   CompName = request.form("Hello")
   Response.Write "At Computer Name: " & CompName
   Response.Write "<input name=""CPUName"" type=""hidden"" value="""&(CompName)&""" />"
%>

If that works.
Then yours should work as well.
I downloaded the components but have not installed them.
I can do this and it runs fine. so yours should run as well.

That is about all that I can do without fully testing the component with your script.
I will have to do that later on this evening of tomorrow.
Right now I am behind on a site that suppose to be released in the morning.

Have a good one.

You are welcome.
And thank you for the Good Luck.

I am hiring my Mother to Promote the Site via Phone Calls to different companies.
And right now I am writting up the information for here to give to the companies about
The site.

It has been a 6 month old project that I am happy to say is 99.99%
have .01% left to complete and if it is not done by this evening, then I am going to have to
Remove that part of it, until it is fixed, as the site has got to go live by tomorrow.

Have a good one.

To bad you cannot "Gave" me a great night, that would be awesome.
Getting tired, but have to atleast finish up a few more things, then i will call it a night.
And start on it about 6:00am, to get it out the door (so to speak) by 10:00am.

(Yep Mom's are awesome. I told me Mom that it was my turn to take care of her, tired of see her working long hours and not making nothing to show for it. I am 38, it is time for me to take care of Her now)

Have a good one.
