include page based on week of year.

I have to update a page every week. I get the page ahead of time so I used
the "scheduled includes" webbot in Frontpage only to find that I would have
to refresh the page every week to have it work. That is silly, it should run
by itself. so...
I asked the question in the FP group and I was offered this pseudocode
to do it by month which would work if it's possible to do it by week without
writing 52 seperate lines, one for each week which would change each year
and have to be rewritten each year.

<% If Now()>date("1/3/2005") then %>
<!-- #include file="includes/mar.asp" -->
<% elseif Now()>date("1/2/2005") then %>
<!-- #include file="includes/feb.asp" -->
<% else %>
<!-- #include file="includes/jan.asp" -->
<% endif %>

Now the goal for me would be something that would calculate which week of
the year (any year) it is.
i.e. Jan 1-7 = w1.htm , Jan 8-15= w2.htm etc. and return a Wx.htm for each
week.
That way all I have to do is save a wx.htm file where x= week of year.
so ... how can I caclulate what week of the year it is?

Use the DatePart function. Here's the online documentation:

Will January 1 - 7 always be Week 1?

Will Week 53 always consist of just one or two days?

Are the includes just generating static HTML (as is hinted in the later part
of the post)?

If so use script to compute the name of the file based on the date and use
the filesystem object to read the contents, then write it out to the client
(may be able to use server.execute as well). If the included html is the
same for all pages then you might even want to cache it in an application
variable and only read the file on the first day of the week.

This will generate an "include file" statement.

<%
Dim incl
incl = "<!--#include file=" & Chr(34) & "w##.htm" & Chr(34) & "-->"
Dim week
week = Replace(incl,"# #",Int((DatePar t("y",Date())+6 )/7))
Response.Write week & vbCrLf
%>

However, AFAIK, you can't generate an "include file" from within ASP then
have it do its thing.

"... server side include files are inserted into their holding file before
any of the holding file is ... processed by ASP..." --

[snip]

However, instead of generating an "include file", you could just open the
file via FSO:

<% Option Explicit
'*
Dim strOTF
strOTF = Request.ServerV ariables("PATH_ TRANSLATED")
strOTF = Left(strOTF,InS trRev(strOTF,"\ "))
strOTF = strOTF & "w" & Int((DatePart(" y",Date())+6 )/7) & ".htm"
'*
Dim objFSO
Set objFSO = CreateObject("S cripting.FileSy stemObject")
If objFSO.FilExist s(strOTF) Then
Dim objOTF
Set objOTF = objFSO.OpenText File(strOTF,1)
strOTF = objOTF.ReadAll( )
Set objOTF = Nothing
End If
Set objFSO = Nothing
'*
Response.Write strOTF
%>

yes , for this application it will.
week 53 would be bundled into week 52

Then insert this line just before "Dim objFSO" in the solution I posted
earlier:

strOTF = Replace(strOTF, "\w53.htm","\w5 2.htm")

I tried the example you gave and it generates the following line this week :
<!--#include file="w3.htm"-->
which looks great but yet there is nothing included in the page?!
the page is an ASP page but the included page is htm so the warning about
dynamic include wouldn't apply right?
What did I miss?
I am going to try your other (FSO) example next but this was so easy I don't
see what I could have missed.

The included file is a doc file, created by a secretary, converted to a .htm
web page within Word and then dropped into a directory on the server and
then it's my job to "include" it on the page. It isn't generated by any
automated process.
If I understand the question.
The VB script solution is testing the limit of my knowledge but I am keeping
up so far. :-)
