    Default We do not have that book... you will have to show us the source code involved.<BR><BR>Be sure to indicate *which* line the error is coming from.<BR><BR>(You don&#039t need to show the whole file. Since the error is on line 17, showing maybe 30 lines or so would be more than enough.)<BR><BR>HAVING SAID ALL THAT...<BR><BR>"Permission denied" probably means just that! You are probably trying to write to a directory or file to which you do not have permissions. Is this under PWS (Personal Web Server) or IIS that you are trying to run?<BR><BR><BR><BR>
