how do I add in a check to make sure the XML file exists? If it doesn't then just use a default image in the same way?

Thanks

Ideally done here...

filename=Server.MapPath "/files/items.xml"

So if no path is set then it uses a default value?!

Thanks

dim fs
set fs=Server.CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
if fs.FileExists("c:\webroot\files\items.xml")=true then
  response.write("File c:\webroot\files\items.xml" exists!")
else
  response.write("File c:\webroot\files\items.xml" does not exist!")
end if
set fs=nothing
