Hi,<BR><BR>I have been studying the Server.Execute and the Includes in my books and articles on this web site. I understand each well but can&#039;t see a real difference between the two. Perhaps Server.Execute is slower because it has to pass another page to the asp.dll? I can&#039;t get the Option Explicit to take when I use my .asp file as an include, but it does work when it is called with Server.Execute. I know the include will work with asp 2.0....<BR><BR>Am I missing something?<BR><BR>Thanks
