Trapping the HTTP Error Numbers...

05-21-2002, 09:36 AM
I have searched through the avaliable posts on this forum, and unfortunetaly there is nothing that helps with my situation.

My scenario is that I need to find the HTTP Error number, i.e. 400, then I can specify a SQL query that will select certain data from a database for a custom error page. The thing is I need to be able to do this in ASP and not in my usual VB!!

Any help would be gratefully received....

You have to configure this in IIS. It is on the Custom Errors tab of
the web site properties.

I have gone through that, and I have looked at using seperate pages for each error message, but what I want to use is just one page, with code in there that will extract data from a SQL server db.

Will I have to configure this in the properties or not?

I have managed to specific one file, using the "URL" option in the "Custom Errors" option within "Properties", however, it is the code within that one ASP document that I need help with.

I just need to know, whether it is a ServerVariable, or not and is not, what it is that will display the Error Code.....

I understand now. There is no guarantee this will work, but you
can try...

dim ASPErr
Set ASPErr = Server.GetLastError
If ASPErr.ASPCode = 400 Then...

The ASP book I have says this is supposed to work, but many
times doesn't. I hope it does for you.
