empty data fields cause asp program crash

Hi everyone,
Recently, I am investigating a problem in our asp page. Somehow it always
crashed in the same places in one of our asp pages for 10 times. It is
because the empty data field caused program crash. Those empty fields, I only
use javascript to create or collect data without backing up by asp program,
I know this is really bad not long ago)
But I cannot duplicate the case in my windows XP and 2000. Then suddenly I
found 8 of 10 have this log text:
---UserAgent Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 5.23; Mac_PowerPC)
*MSIE version could be different in this line, most of them is 5.22 and some
are 5.0 and 5.23

I don't know the exact meaning of the line, it seems like diffrent IE
version installed on MAC operating system, it seems like our program doesn't
work the same way as it is on windows system with IE or firefox installed
etc. We only tested on windows with IE, firefox and AOL.
Am I close to the origination of the problem source?
Thank you.

Hello Betty,

What did you "crashed" in the ASP page? Is there any error message there?
And, have you found the exact line of code which cause the problem?

Regarding the "empty data field", are they got from underlying database and
displayed on your ASP page? If the problem is related to "empty data
field", I think the browser may not be root cause for the issue.
