Default include file in if statement

Hi i have a file datastore.inc with the following code.


Set Conn=Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
Conn.Open "Provider=SQLOLEDB.1;Persist Security Info=False;User ID=sa;Password=AStrongSAPwd;Initial Catalog=matrimonialSQL;Data Source=irfan-7t55kas0v;Initial File Name=c:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL\Data\matrimonialSQL.mdf"


I am doing something like this in my code

if oldpassword <> "" then %>


I just want to confirm, my question is though I have this include file in my if statemnt will it be included only if the if statement is true or will it be included regardless the moment my page comes ?

Hi there,

The file will be included anyway, regardless of the value of oldpassword. That is because include files are added to the page before the entire page gets processed. Then then entire page (with the include statements) is processed as one page.

However, whether it actually displays any output, or runs all its embedded functions depends on the value of oldpassword.
