I have moved an ASP based website from one webhosting server to a hosted test environment. Everything in the website seems to work fine, except for one function that uploads a csv file to the server and adds the values to a mysql database. The code of that page is:


  if session("adm") <> "OK" then
    response.redirect "login.asp"
  end if

   filename = "/admin/uploads/import.csv"

   set myUpload = Server.CreateObject("aspSmartUpload.SmartUpload")
'   i = myUpload.SaveAs("/admin/uploads/import.csv")
  For each file In myUpload.Files
	If not file.IsMissing Then
	end if
' abuisness end

' local server start
'   set Upload = Server.CreateObject("Persits.Upload")
'   count = Upload.Save
'   for each File in Upload.Files
'	 File.SaveAs server.mappath(filename)
'   next
'   set upload = nothing
' local server end
   set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
   set myFile = fso.OpenTextFile(server.mappath(filename), 1, True)
  do while myFile.AtEndOfStream <> True
    curLine = replace(MyFile.ReadLine,"'","''")
    if i > 0 then
	  sql = sql & "('" & replace(curLine,";","','") & "'),"
	end if

  set myFile = nothing
  set fso = nothing
  db_open db

  sql = "insert into import_forhandlere (ForhandlerID, Byen, Forhandler, PostNr, Email) values " & left(sql, len(sql)-1)

  ' delete dealers not in file
  sql = "delete from forhandlere where forhandlerid not in (select forhandlerid from import_forhandlere)"

  ' update existing dealers
  sql = "update forhandlere as f left join import_forhandlere as i on f.forhandlerid = i.forhandlerid set f.byen = i.byen, f.forhandler = i.forhandler, f.postnr = i.postnr, ="

  ' insert new dealers
  sql = "insert into forhandlere (forhandlerid, byen, forhandler, postnr, email) (SELECT forhandlerid, byen, forhandler, postnr, email FROM import_forhandlere WHERE forhandlerid NOT IN (SELECT forhandlerid FROM forhandlere))"

  ' delete all entries in import_table (prepare for next import)
  sql = "delete from import_forhandlere"

  db_close db
  response.redirect "index.asp?upload=1"

I get this error in my browser when I try to upload a file in the new server:

Microsoft VBScript runtime error '800a0005'

Invalid procedure call or argument: 'left'

/admin/upload.asp, line 49

On line 49 there's this code:
sql = "insert into import_forhandlere (ForhandlerID, Byen, Forhandler, PostNr, Email) values " & left(sql, len(sql)-1)

The file does get uploaded on the server, though the values do not get updated in the database. This however works on the other server.

Any ideas of what the problem can be?
