Default Drop and create View behavior

Hi there I am having some odd behavior with a view (sqlserver 2008 r2)

Here is the code in the file (ASP or VBS file same behavior):

    strsql = " USE [DBName]" & _
         " GO " & _
         " IF  EXISTS (SELECT * FROM sys.views WHERE object_id = OBJECT_ID(N'[dbo].[tblName]')) " & _
         " DROP VIEW [dbo].[viewName] " & _
         " GO "

In my log file I get no error bu the script does not run. When I print the paste the strsql value to the log file and paste into SQL Management console and check query I get 'Incorrect syntax near 'GO' . Since the statement is one long string I reformat it like this and it works without issue:

 USE [DBNAme] 
  IF  EXISTS (SELECT * FROM sys.views WHERE object_id = OBJECT_ID(N'[dbo].    [viewName]'))  
  DROP VIEW [dbo].[viewName]  
What am I missing here, I'm sure it obvious.... Can someone post an example of how they are running a create view in an ASP or VBS file? Note. All my CREATE Table, ALTER table etc statements are working fine. Its just the view im having trouble with

Thanking you

The most obvious is that the statements are different. In your top statement you where clause is a such
 WHERE object_id = OBJECT_ID(N'[dbo].[tblName]'))
and in bottom it is as such
 WHERE object_id = OBJECT_ID(N'[dbo].    [viewName]'))
