View Full Version : Chilisoft asp

09-01-2005, 09:14 AM
Does anyone here have experience working under a chilisoft asp environment?
I work on IIS (at work) but I just tried to run one of my scripts on my own host that runs chilisoft and I'm having a hard time getting things working.

My first problem was with regexp but I got that issue solved - it was merely a syntax difference (I think, dont know if the code works, but it compiles heh)

The next problem I've come accrosss is .execute. I use this command a lot to execute sql queries. In the end I had to change them all to rs.open instead
The problem I have now is I'm also using execute to create a string from an array of variable names eg.

execute("strCode = strCode&"&order(i))
but i get this:

Microsoft VBScript runtime error '800a000d'

Type mismatch: 'execute'
is there a different command in chilisoft to do what i'm doing because I cant get execute to work at all, even with basic strings.

Sorry I'm confused - do you mean ADODBConnection.Execute (http://www.devguru.com/technologies/ado/8546.asp) ?

If so, strCode should be a SQL statement (or stored proc name), it shouldn't be in quotes, and I'd do any string concatenation before you pass it into the function.

I've changed all my connection.execute statements to recordset.open sql, connection and they are working fine now.
execute can also be used to execute a string as if it was a statement - eg.

I want to do this

strCode = strCode & a

where 'a' is a variable that contains a string
however the names of the variables that I want to append to the string strCode are stored in an array order().
so the execute command can be used to execute the string "strCode = strCode & a" as a statement.

execute("strCode = strCode&"&order(i))

This works fine on IIS but not when working with chilisoft and I cannot find an alternative or a reason why the command would fail

sorry if I caused confusion with the conn.execute part of my post.
I really just want to know what (if any) the alternative to execute is when using chillisoft asp rather than running on iis.
