Reading in a file using asp

P: n/a
I have the following code in an asp that just seems to hang when executed.
When I disable the "Set theFileReader = fileObj.OpenTextFile(contentFile,1,True)"
line, I see that the file exists.
I am running this on Windows 2000 with IIS Server.
Any help would be appreciated

<%

Dim fileObj, contentFile, textFileLoc, theFileReader, rate
Set fileObj = Server.CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
textFileLoc = "blah.txt"
contentFile = Server.MapPath(textFileLoc)
If fileObj.FileExists(contentFile) then
Response.Write("File " + contentFile + " exists")
Set theFileReader = fileObj.OpenTextFile(contentFile,1,True)
rate = theFileReader.ReadLine
theFileReader.Close
Set theFileReader=Nothing
Set fileObj=Nothing

Else
Response.Write("File " + contentFile + " does not exist")

End If

RATE IS: <%=rate%>
