session variable in an include file

Hello,

I first create a session variable 'client' in the login.asp file
The login.asp file opens a file (xxx.asp) with an include file
..
If I write
<!--#include file="../../../data/" & session("client") &
"/language_ger.inc"-->
I have a message stating that the application can't find the file.

If I write the path without the variable (" & session("client") & ")
<!--#include file="../../../data/eurovini/language_ger.inc"-->
it works without any problem.

Question
- is there is an error in the syntax?
- is it possible to include this kind of variable in an include file.
And if not, any idea to get the same result?

Thanks for your help. Bye

You cannot use asp code in an include declaration.

The include first inserts the text content in the file,
and THEN the total is read by the asp interpretor,
rendering the html for the stream to clientside.

Try:

<% ' vbscript assumed
server.execute "../../../data/" & session("client") & "/lang.asp"
%>

This cannot be the same file,
as server.execute will execute asp code without the <%..%>
