I need help on the above questions, writing this exams in 5 hours time. Please help me solve this, a beginner here


You will be pleased to know that it took ten minutes to go through and format your post. In the end one would have to say there is still no hope in getting an answer here… It’s not an MS leaning site. Dot NET technologies are not taught here and so there is no MS community gravitating toward it.

We can readily draw parallels and port one program over to another platform. Likewise relate one platform back to the other. If you are looking for real insights then go back to your VBScript basics and bounce your code off that. Sorry if I’m out of line.

One asks as a newbie to VBScript, is the escapement needed?

More importantly, where is the OPENTAG for your script? We can clearly see the ENDTAG,


Something like this must have to appear in the HTML…

<SCRIPT type="VBScript"> ... </SCRIPT>

That’s the SGML way to typecast resources.


It’s okay, as a beginner am actually learning the basics of all this, but am supposed to tested. Am sorry if this post is inappropriate in any way. Thanks for your contribution.


Not inappropriate, just far flung, so to speak. Nothing to apologize for. We are in foreign lands and you have just washed up on our shore, along with two others in the past week (dot net survivors?). Is there a shipwreck somewhere abouts that we should know about?


:grinning::grin: am not sure there’s any shipwreck. I had a tight schedule last few weeks and couldn’t practice. I was thinking I could get some help in understanding those questions. Thanks again for replying.
