They were telling you what could be missing. I'll see if I can elaborate a
little, but you've got a lot of work ahead of you.

Your first mistake was in thinking that ANYTHING about ASP.Net is "simple."
Your title says "asp.net simple question." Well, if it's so simple, why are
you here? In your message you stated "I have a simple aspx page..." Again,
there is nothing simple about ASP.Net. A console application that prints
"hello world" to the screen is relatively simple. Everything happens in a
nice little sandbox on your local machine. ASP.Net is an ISAPI (Internet
Server Application Programming Interface) that resides on IIS, and handles
HTTP requests over a TCP/IP network. So, you're already talking about
something complex there. An ASP.Net application uses the Microsoft .Net
Framework, which is multi-threaded, object-oriented, and network-oriented.
So, add more complexity to the issue. Notice that I havent' even talked
about an ASP.Net Page yet, much less one that prints "hello world" to an
HTML document returned to a browser via an HTTP Request. HTTP is a stateless
protocol, which complicates things MUCH further.

To use ASP.Net, you first have to understand something about the environment
in which it runs. Then you have to understand something about the platform
it runs ON. Then you must understand something about the ASP.Net programming
model, including the object-oriented aspects, maintaining state, and what a
System.Web.UI.Control is, and how it behaves.

Here's a good place to start:

Kevin I understood your post. Curt's response was more helpful and that
solved my problem than your reply.

I know asp.net is complex, but I am talking here about a simple page which
just has 2 words "hello world" its not using complex technology like COM
components, other framework calls, other stuffs like session, cookies,
session from asp to asp.net, viewstate etc...etc.....

I am an application developer who cares about my application....Microsoft is
there to take care of complex things for developers like me and I just need
to concentrate on my application....

My heading was pointed to experts acording to them its a simple issue.

anyway what ever you have said is true and I appriciate spending your time
for me.

cheers !
