Default VBScript runtime error '800a01a8' - FIXED


Keep getting the VBScript runtime error '800a01a8' on an .asp page, and it also says:

Object required: "

and the line number. I just do not know where they want the quotes to go. Do you?

Here is the line of coding referenced in the error message as it currently stands:

WEBsiteNAME <%=(rs.Fields.Item("date").Value)%>&nbsp;<%=(rs.Fi elds.Item("title").Value)%> Page

Thank you in advance for any info you can provide.

While this shouldnt make a difference, remove the outside ( ) and you can also try changing rs.fields.item to rs("date") and rs("title")

Well, the problem has been solved - totally unrelated to the above. Apparently whoever created the sql database connected to this particular website entered in incorrect URLs - consistently, which made it easy for me to update and correct them so this page is working now.

However, I will go over now to the SQL forum and ask how to do a global search and replace in a SQL database so hopefully I can run some script somewhere to automate this correction for me. Otherwise, I will need to go in and check all fields of each record to ensure the links are correct.

Thank you for your response!
