This is my first attempt at using the FileSystemObject to create a text file. I am not adding anything to the text file at this time, only attempting to creat and then delete a text file to test permissions with the code below:<BR><BR><%<BR> Dim objFSC<BR> Set objFSO = Server.CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")< BR> textfilename= objFSO.GetTempName<BR><BR> Set objTS=objFSO.CreateTextFile(Server.MapPath("/") & textfilename)<BR> <BR> objTS.Close<BR> Set objTS = nothing <BR> objFSO.DeleteFile Server.MapPath("/") & textfilename, False <BR> Set objFSO = Nothing <BR>%><BR><BR><BR>I get permission denied on the create text file line 6. if I had the correct permissions, would this code work? Is there a way to figure out the permissions through an ASP page of a remotely hosted server? Anyone who has used CrystalTech as their host, do they allow write and full access for this purpose as the FAQ says it is required? If not, is this something I can request? <BR><BR>How would I add the results of a recordset to the textfile? Would I need to do objTS.WriteLine or am I barking up the wrong tree? <BR><BR>Thanks.
