Hi everybody!
I want to give the users an option to download to their computer ASP file that is existing in my server, is it possible?

Sure is and this is how you do it.

You have a link on the page that you want them to be able to DL and send the URL to another page. Such as if your page was 'somepage.asp' you would have a link called 'downloadasp.asp?ref=somepage.asp'. 'downloadasp.asp' would then read the contents of 'somepage.asp' and spit it all to the screen. 'download.asp' would have to have its headers changed so that it sent back a text file but I am sure this will be easy for you to figure out :)

I am sure some one else will write the code for you. I will/can not. Number one I am busy and number two I have classes tonight, therefore I have no time.

From what I understand your just trying to allow people to view a ASP page's source code. Here is a page explaining how to do that: http://www.asp101.com/samples/source.asp

1. Open ASP file in Notepad
2. Save as filename.txt
3. Upload to server
4. <a href="filename.txt">clicky</a>
