Thanks for the response. However, I'm having more problems than I
anticipated. I haven't used the ASPError object extensively, so I did a
bit of research and thought I'd put together an ASP page to test the
theory. I looked at http://www.w3schools.com/asp/asp_ref_error.asp and
http://www.asphole.com/StoriesRead.ASP?ID=31, which seem to be
essentially the same. When I try to run either of them, I get no change
to the normal error page. is the test page on my server, and the
following is the code. Can anyone punt me in the right direction?


'The following line creates an error
dim i for i=1 to 1 next

'Call the GetLastError() method to trap the error
dim objerr
set objerr=Server.GetLastError()

'The variable objerr now contains the ASPError object
response.write("ASP Code=" & objerr.ASPCode)
response.write("<br />")
response.write("Number=" & objerr.Number)
response.write("<br />")
response.write("Source=" & objerr.Source)
response.write("<br />")
response.write("Filename=" & objerr.File)
response.write("<br />")
response.write("LineNumber=" & objerr.Line)

Muchos gracias...
