Can someone please help me understand why this gives me an error and how to correct it?

<iframe name="main" width="89%" height="100%" align="right" frameborder="0" style="background-color:#FFFFFF; overflow:hidden;" src="<% If Request.querystring("loadCurrent") = 1 Then Response.write "EditCurrent.asp" ElseIf Request.querystring("loadCurrent") = 2 Then Response.write "main.htm" Else Response.write "main.htm" End If %>"></iframe>

Remove   Response.write.
i mean replace the line
 Response.write "EditCurrent.asp"
with only
"EditCurrent.asp"

Microsoft VBScript compilation error '800a0400'

Expected statement

/corpcardnew/Default.asp, line 64

If Request.querystring("loadCurrent") = 1 Then "EditCurrent.asp" ElseIf Request.querystring("loadCurrent") = 2 Then "main.htm" Else "main.htm" End If

are the double quotes around "EditCurrent.asp"  possibly breaking this?

i would write out the code like this, its a lot more readable:

<% 
If Request.querystring("loadCurrent") = 1 Then 
    src = "EditCurrent.asp" 
ElseIf Request.querystring("loadCurrent") = 2 Then 
    src = "main.htm" 
Else 
    src = "main.htm" 
End If 
%>

<iframe name="main" width="89%" height="100%" align="right" frameborder="0" style="background-color:#FFFFFF; overflow:hidden;" src="<%=src%>" ></iframe>

VBscript wants it to be a multi-line coding like The_Big_Daddy shows above.  The end of line means something to the VBscript parser and it's missing when you try to put it all on one line like you have.  That's what the error "Expected end of statement " in your original post is referring to.

You can separate commands on one line with a colon. Also good practice to only call your request variable once. Use the select case statement as it is more suitable in this situation. Try this:
<iframe name="main" width="89%" height="100%" align="right" frameborder="0" style="background-color:#FFFFFF; overflow:hidden;" src="<% Dim loadcurrentresponse:loadcurrentresponse = Request.querystring("loadCurrent"):select case loadcurrentresponse:case "1":response.write("EditCurrent.asp"):case else:response.write("main.htm"):End select%>"></iframe>
