I'm  not sure what function this code is attempting to use.  This is re-writing old code to work with current versions of .net  currently the function Request() is flagged as undeclared. I'm not sure the original intent of this function or where to find it.

Partial Public Class _loginlookup
 

    

function stripQuotes(strWords) 
	stripQuotes = replace(strWords, "'", "''") 
end function 

function killChars(strWords) 
	dim badChars(0 to 6) as string
	dim newChars as string
	dim i 


	badChars(0) = "select"
    badChars(1) = "drop"
    badChars(2) = ";"
    badChars(3) = "--"
    badChars(4) = "insert"
    badChars(5) = "delete"
    badChars(6) = "xp_"
	newChars = strWords 
	
	for i = 0 to uBound(badChars)
		newChars = replace(newChars, badChars(i), "")
	next 
	killChars = newChars 
end function 

function HTMLEncoder(strWords) as string
	
    HTMLEncoder = System.Web.HttpContext.Current.Server.HTMLEncode(strWords)
end function

'Used to secure request objects (Strings ONLY)
function allSecure(fieldName)
	allSecure = stripQuotes(killChars(HTMLEncoder(Request(fieldName))))
end function

'Used to secure variables
function allSecure2(fieldName)
	allSecure2 = stripQuotes(killChars(HTMLEncoder(fieldName)))
end function

end class

It looks like accessing the Request query parameter i.e. the current Request.
Try

System.Web.HttpContext.Current.Request(fieldName)
