runtime error '800a004c'

Recommended Posts

Hi, I'm new to ASP and working from a dated book. The code in one example keeps giving me an error. Can anyone tell me what's wrong with the code? I'm using Dreamweaver to write the code, but running through the internet. The files are saved on the web server. I use crome because it tells me what's wrong. I'll post the code then post the error report. The code (and by the way, the txt file already exist.)

<%option explicit %>

<html xmlns="

<title>Guest Book</title>

Dim filesys, peoplefile
Set filesys = createobject("scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set peoplefile=FileSys.OpenTextFile("Z:\vreid\gbpeople.txt",8,true)
Peoplefile.writeline request.form("firstname")
Peoplefile.writeline request.form("Lastname")
Peoplefile.writeline request.form("Gender")
Peoplefile.writeline request.form("age")
Peoplefile.writeline request.form("email")

The error messages indicates that the file it's trying to open doesn't exist. Make sure to use the correct path to the file on the server.
