Check file exist without using Server.CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")

Greetings,

Is it possbile to check a file exist without using
Server.CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject") in asp page??

The reason is our hosting company turn that function off for security
reason.

Here is my original code:
<%
Dim objFSO
Set objFSO = Server.CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
If objFSO.FileExists ("yourfile.txt") Then
Response.Write "File exists"
Else
Response.Write "File does not exist"
End If
%>

Thanks a lot.

Lin

If you have SQL Server on the box, you can use master..xp_fileexist. Or
maybe on error resume next and server.execute or something like that. But
generally, no.

Switch hosts. They're acting like Rain Man only wanting to fly Qantas, and
most other hosts allow this functionality because they know how to manage
it.
