Hi, guys.
I just want to ask you in vbscript if the function can be inside other functions.
Please take a look.

Function third

cn="DRIVER={Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)};"
cn=cn & "DBQ=" & server.mappath(accessdb)
Set rs = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Recordset")
sql = "select * from tblFAQ"
rs.Open sql, cn
With Response
.Buffer = true
.Expires = 0
End With

'these functions come from http://codelib.aspemporium.com/
Function GetFreeFile(byval dir, byval dotextension)
Dim filename, f

filename = PathCombinePath(dir, GetRndFileName(dotextension))
set f = createobject("scripting.filesystemobject")
do while f.fileexists(filename)
filename = PathCombinePath(dir, GetRndFileName(dotextension))
set f = nothing

GetFreeFile = filename
End Function

function GetRndFileName(byval dotextension)
GetRndFileName = "Pricelist" & clng(todaysDate) & clng(timer) & dotextension
end function
end function

When I call Function third, it seems script recognize it as same as other functions so it crashes.

I want to make function structure like below.
Function third
Function GetFreeFile
End Function
Function GetRndFileName
End Function
End Function

Functions should have parameters, your function has none. That's probably why you're getting errors.
