I have a asp page with vbscript subroutine in the page, it display a graphic bar chart.  I would like convert this page to page, but I have problem, I moved the asp page to aspx, it gave me lots of errors, because the vbscript subroutine is combined with asp code altogether.  Below is my asp page, how to convert to .net?  Hope someone can give me some help.
Dim objConn, objRS, strSQL, Sum, objSum, strMonth, strYear, objstrMonth, objstrYear

Set objSum     =  objRS("Sum")
Set objstrMonth  =  objRS("strMonth")
Set objstrYear   =  objRS("strYear")

Why do you want to convert this? If it works, then let it be.

If you really need in in .Net, then best is to rewrite this from scratch.

I see some quick things that won't work in

- you can not mix html and script in a functionj in .Net as you could in classic asp. But you can have a function that creates and returns a HTML string, or you could use an <asp:Repeater>

- Some stuff is not or not directly supported in Like ADODB.RecordSet, it can be supported in .Net, but has its own classes which are better fit. Also the function "cint()" is non-existing in vb.Net.

- The code isn't very well written. Who counts records in a recordset by looping through all records?

- Please use some css in stead of the <font> tag
