We use COM objects, but the error is occuring on pages with just ASP script...nothing more. This is a good point about proper exception handling...I'll check into it.

This is a generic error that is as specific as, "Something broke, but I dunno what." Are you instantiating any COM objects? --Any third party/custom ones? --I've found this is usually the culprit; an error in a third party or custom COM object that doesn't have proper error handling/raising in it. Do you have a development box with debugging capabilities? sgd -- work: http://www.ti3.com/ non: http://thinksafely.org/ --------------------------------------- For unsubscribe and other options, including the Tip Harvester and archive of TheList go to: http://lists.evolt.org Workers of the Web, evolt !
