    pardon the simple question

    I am just getting into ASP and i am having a bit of a problem.
    If I set variables in the Application_OnStart() in the global.asa which
    is run on the server and then I try to display or use the variables in a
    page the variables do not seem to exist.
    I get the same problem even if I run examples from the wrox ProAsp 3.0

    An example would be:

    in global.asa or within test.asp

    <% LANGUANGE="VBScript" runat="server" %>
    sub Application_onStart()
    Application("Name") = "test"
    end sub


    <H1> Application Name: <% = Application("Name") %> </H>

    The only thing displayed is the "Application Name:"

    Is this a configuration problem?

    thank you for your help

  2. Hi,
    I use global.asa thus:
    <script language="VBScript" runat="Server">
    Sub Application_OnStart
    Application("VisitantesAtivos") = 0
    Application("TotalVisitas") = 0
    End Sub

    Sub Application_OnEnd
    End Sub

    Sub Session_OnStart
    Session.Timeout = 60 '»»60 min. = 1 h. Tempo de expiração da session padrão
    no site da hi-tec.
    Application("VisitantesAtivos") = Application("VisitantesAtivos") + 1
    Application("TotalVisitas") = Application("TotalVisitas") + 1
    End Sub

    Sub Session_OnEnd
    Application("VisitantesAtivos") = Application("VisitantesAtivos") - 1
    End Sub

    so you can write the values in any places of you asp application:

  3. Have you restarted the application since adding this code to the global.asa?
    Usually it's not necessary, but, it can't hurt to try.

    thanks for the response.
    I did try that a few times.
    This doesn't seem to make sense.

    Thank you for your response.

    I have almost the exact code you have and it
    still does not work!

    Is the directory containing the global.asa file defined as an application in
    IIS (icon in IIS manager should be an activeX "ball" in a box)?

    thank you.
    Okay, I just realized my problem. I was trying to run the site from
    Interdev. when I run the site/app from a ie it works fine.
    So, what is the secret to getting this to work within Interdev?

    thanks again
