I am just starting to learn ASP. I am using Microsoft's Personal Web Server in order to write and test my pages. I have a problem already! Whenever I code ASP using the "<%" the browser(?) doesnt recognize it. Anything between the "<%" and "%>" gets ignored. I am using a book to help me learn ASP so the code is correct. Here it is:<BR><%<BR>Dim strDepartment<BR>strDepartment = Request.Form("Department")<BR>Response.Write strDepartment<BR>%><BR><BR>It is about as simple as you can get. Just take the data from the form (on another page) and place it on this new page. I have checked everything and can't understand why the browser ignors it. <BR><BR>Are there additional files I should be downloading from Microsoft to help here? Is something missing in my browser? Please help. I would like to continue with my lessons but see no point if I can't get this to work.<BR>Thank You.
