FileSystemObjec t

I have inherited form that requires me to use the FilesystemObjec t to
write to a file. I have to use Javascript to instantiate and use the
object. I think that I am having a problem as far as getting the
javascript to work server side. I am able to create a file and write
to it locally but when trying to work it on the server, I get
Unspecified Error. I thought that possibly using <script
language="javas cript" runat="server"> would take care of that. But it
says objected expected when I have thte runat=server in there. It
doesn't even recognize the function. Any ideas on how i can run the
following code onSubmit using Javascript? I had it done in vbscript
but the client insists that it be done using Javascript. Please
help!!!!!

8,true);
newfile.WriteLi ne("It works.");
newfile.Close() ;
}

Does the server have any antivirus software installed? Norton is famous for
causing problems with this kind of script: if you have it then you might
look into disbling the "script blocking" feature.

I see that the client does not insist of JavaScript, but instead
favors using anything but VB trash. The answers to this are well
documented. Try the HTTP protocol this month.

I am trying to get the name of a file with a specific extension (tmw) from several different directories. The problem I am having is that the program stops working on the second pass with an run time error 76. The paths are valid. I tested them and there is a file with the extension specified.

Hi, I've got a freebie hosting mirror of my production personal website (sounds kinda grandiose, doesn't it?) at http://journeys.webhostme.com/.

The freebie has a kind of half-ass*d FileSystemObject, but it has no GetFile method. Is there...

Hi all, FileSystemObject question... I'm trying to check if files exist or not, but the files are not sitting on the same server as our Intranet.

I keep seeing that you can use the FileSystemObject in either VB script, or Javascript on an aspx page. I added a refrence to the scrrun.dll I added importing namespaces for 'System.Object', 'Scripting', 'Scripting.FileSystemObject', and a few others However, when I try to create the fso object I keep receiving an error. 'ActiveX component can't create object: 'Scripting.FileSystemObject'
