    Hi Sammy,

    There are lots of tutorials available on the web, my favourite sites being w3schools and 4guysfromrolla

    The example below demonstrates how to call a function:

    In the head of the ASP page:

    <SCRIPT LANGUAGE="vbscript" RUNAT="Server">
      dim cube       ' script-level variable           
       Sub CubeIt(x)
          cube = x^3
       end sub

    You can then call your function from the body:


    Dim intVar
    intVar = 3
    CubeIt intVar
    Response.Write cube

    If you have any more queries or want me to clarify anything let me know.

    Function MyFunction(value)
        Dim return : return = ""
        return = "Your passed " & value & " into the function"
        MyFunction = return
    End Function

    'To write the return value:
    Response.Write(MyFunction("Some text"))

    'You could use "Sub" but sub's doesn't return values.
    'If you don't want to write the return to screen you could use;

    Call MyFunction("Some text")

    Hope this helps

    well u can include the asp page ( where you have written the function) into any asp page using the script tag then we can call the function from this page as include returns the page completly into the calling page.
