Dear Exerts,

I try to extract the total execution time of the for loop in the following asp code
and since vbscript is not doing well  with miilli-second extraction, so I use javascript code
for extracting time in ms from start and ending of for loop.

Now the code is working, it show the Start and End time. But how to
do substraction  on start-time - end time ?

I tried  put  the end-time javascript right after <% %> similar code to the start time  javascript code. But it showed the wrong result that is why I put into head tag for end time javascript code.

Any better approach for doing that ?

Please advise

	response.write("Start time in ms: " + myvar );
Dim i,a,b,c
for i = 1 to 2e6
response.write("<br/>(i,a,b,c)=" & i & "=" &  a & "=" & b & "=" &c & "<br/>")

 var a = new Date();
var myvar = Date.UTC(a.getFullYear(),a.getMonth(),a.getDay(),a.getHours(),a.getMinutes(),a.getSeconds(),a.getMilliseconds());
	document.write("End&nbsp;&nbsp;time in ms: ",myvar);
