Timer function

Hello All,

I am having a problem calling the Timer function. I get a compile error
when I include a call to this function.

Invalid character
/sirenServer/INCLUDE/test.asp, line 32, column 19
starttime = Timer()

Here is my system setup:
ASP.dll Version: 5.0.2195.6672
VBscript.dll Version: 5.6.0.8515
On Windows 2000 with IIS5.0 and front page server extensions 2002.
IE 6, VS.NET 2003. and Visual Studio 6.

VBScript Engine: 5.6 Return from :
response.write "VBScript Engine: "
response.write ScriptEngineMajorVersion
response.write "." response.write ScriptEngineMinorVersion

And according to the Version Information of VBScript, the Timer function
language element was implemented in Version 5.0.

Any thoughts??

Type that line over (and maybe the line before and after). Usually this is
because you copied the code from somewhere and it included some
non-printable character that the ASP engine doesn't like.
