debugging classic asp

10-09-2006, 10:15 AM
I have a site in classic asp.
A user selects various parameters. these are fed into a stored proc call in sql server, which returns the data.

I am having an issue, where when a user selects their parameters and clicks the submit button, there is an error with the returned data.

The asp page simply directs the browser to a default page when an error occours using this:

<%If Err.Number <> 0 Then

' Error has occurred so redirect to Error page
Response.Redirect "/Error.asp"

End If

i wanted ot see the exact error so i removed this code, and hey presto, the app displays all the correct data!! i think it may be a conflict between asp datatypes and sql datatypes or something stupid. i need to know, how do i debug this? how do i get the asp page to show me where it has an error? although its working now, id like to resolve this a bit more permanently, as the error control code is there for a reason.

thanks all

If you take out "On Error Resume Next" it will die on the first error it gets to.

If you leave that in, you'll have to put an "If Err.Number<>0 Then" check after every line that could potentially have problems.

(Since all variables in Classic ASP are varients, I doubt it is a conflict in datatypes. I would lead more to a Null value...)
