I have this VBscript:

<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="VBScript">
ext = replace(right("{DOC:FileName}",4),".","")
</SCRIPT>

I need to place ext as the file name in:

<img src="{FILES_DIR}/template/powerview/matter/DocIcons/(place ext here).jpg" height=20>

What is the proper way to do this?

You're better off getting the extension using the GetExtensionName from file system object:

sExt = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject").GetExtensionName("{DOC:FileName}")

For the placement inline, you can just use ASP to do inline.  Here is an example:

<html>
<head>
<%
sub vbproc(num1,num2)
response.write(num1*num2)
end sub
%>
</head>
<body>

<p>Result: <%call vbproc(3,4)%></p>

</body>
</html>

Will the FSO method return the extension even if the filepath and name stored in DOC:Filename isn't on the same machine?
Doc:Filename is simply a field with a string.....may not be accessible from current machine.

FSO will accept a file or a string as an arg so it should work.  If you caled this it would work so it should be the same:

sExt = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject").GetExtensionName("c:\test.vbs")

If you do not want to use ASP, you can use innerHTML to replace text inside tags in the body.

Below is a clumsy example ;o)

Hope this helps,
Daz.

<html>
<head>


<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="VBScript">

Sub LoadImageSource
    ext = replace(right("C:\madeup\path\document.doc",4),".","")
    imgsource.innerHTML = "<img src=""{FILES_DIR}/template/powerview/matter/DocIcons/" & ext & ".jpg"" height=20>"
End Sub

</SCRIPT>


</head>
<body onload="LoadImageSource">



This is the image:<br />
<span id="imgsource"></span>

</body>
</html>

I'll try the innerHTML and get back.
