    you'd have to use the file system object.

    Are you writing to a text file, html file, etc.?

    Let me know, in the mean time I'll write you a good example of writing stuff to a text file.

        But....

        Make sure that the web server has write permissions enabled on the folder containing the file. Or less you'll be plegued with access denied errors.

            Sorry scroots, completely forgot about my promise....

            as promised, here's a simple example of how to write to an html file... (actually - this creates the file...)

            <%@Language=VBScript%>
            <%
            Set fso = Server.CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
            set fs = fso.CreateTextFile("FULL_PATH_TO_YOUR_FILE", true)
            fs.writeline("<html>")
            fs.writeline("</html>")
            fs.Close
            set fs = nothing
            set fso = nothing
            %>

            Hope this gives you some insight ... althought I'm sure you may have figured all this out already.

              Hey, if you want to add text to an exisiting file, change:

              CreateTextFile("FULL_PATH_TO_YOUR_FILE", True)

              to

              OpenTextFile("FULL_PATH_TO_YOUR_FILE")

              If you have more questions, post and we'll help

                  got the idea but i need it from a simple form (text area) with a send button.
                  it will help me learn ASP.

                  please

                    Easiest way to do this is just read from the textarea and write it to the file.... it may not be formatted in the nicest looking way, but the output will stay the same...

                    Html page
                    Code:
                    <form action="YOUR_ASP_PAGE.ASP" method="post">
                    <textarea rows="10" cols="30" name="theText"></textarea>
                    <br>
                    <input type="submit">
                    </form>
                    in the ASP page that you submit your form to, have the line
                    fs.write(Request.Form("theText")) instead of the fs.writeline statements.

                    ASP Page
                    Code:
                    <%@Language=VBScript%> 
                    <% 
                    Set fso = Server.CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject") 
                    set fs = fso.CreateTextFile("FULL_PATH_TO_YOUR_FILE", true) 
                    fs.write(Request.Form("theText"))
                    fs.Close 
                    set fs = nothing 
                    set fso = nothing 
                    %>
                    That should do the trick,

                    let me know if you need any clarification.

                          <head>
                          <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=windows-1252">
                          <meta name="GENERATOR" content="Microsoft FrontPage 4.0">
                          <meta name="ProgId" content="FrontPage.Editor.Document">
                          <title>New Page 1</title>
                          </head>

                          <body>
                          <form action="myasp.asp" method="post">
                          <textarea rows="10" cols="30" name="theText"></textarea>
                          <br>
                          <input type="submit">
                          </form>

                          </body>

                          </html>


                          the other page (myasp.asp):
                          <html>

                          <head>
                          <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=windows-1252">
                          <meta name="GENERATOR" content="Microsoft FrontPage 4.0">
                          <meta name="ProgId" content="FrontPage.Editor.Document">
                          <title>New Page 1</title>
                          </head>

                          <body>
                          <%@Language=VBScript%>
                          <%
                          Set fso = Server.CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
                          set fs = fso.CreateTextFile("my.txt", true)
                          fs.write(Request.Form("theText"))
                          fs.Close
                          set fs = nothing
                          set fso = nothing
                          %>

                          </body>

                          </html>

                          the first page does the form action (sends to myasp.asp) but myasp.asp does not write to a file.
                          can anyone help?

                            That worked fine for me - however I had to map the path to the directory on my server (database) that has write permissions.:

                            <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=windows-1252">
                            <meta name="GENERATOR" content="Microsoft FrontPage 4.0">

                            </head>

                            <body>
                            <%@Language=VBScript%>
                            <%

                            sMapPath = Server.MapPath("\")
                            sMapPath = Mid(sMapPath, 1, InStrRev(sMapPath,"\")-1) & "\database\my.txt"

                            Set fso = Server.CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
                            set fs = fso.CreateTextFile(sMapPath, true)
                            fs.write(Request.Form("theText"))
                            fs.Close
                            set fs = nothing
                            set fso = nothing
                            %>

                            </body>

                            </html>

                            Are you getting an error, or what?
