MS VBScript Compilation error 800a0401

I have no idea what's wrong with the following ASP statement:

Response.Write "<select name=\"id\">"

MS VBScript Compilation error 800a0401
expected end of statement

However, if I do the following, it will be fine:

<select name="id">
<%

%>
</select>
any ideas??

Response.Write "<select name=""id"">"

Within VBScript, you escape a " with another " and not \.

The \ character is used to escape characters in jscript, not vbscript. In
vbscript, you write "" to escape a " character in a string.
Response.Write "<select name=""id"">"

When the ASP statement end with a _ character, then the next line cannot have comment ' character. Is that correct? Since I encountered the following error: Microsoft VBScript compilation (0x800A0400) Expected statement sqlStmt = "insert into TimeSlot (WeekDay, BeginTime, EndTime) VALUES (" _ ' & 2 & "," _ & beginhour & "," _

Overview: Windows 11 and 10 have less user interface control over operating system update behaviour than previous versions of Windows.
