ASP » Server » Execute

Version: 3.0

Syntax:
Server.Execute(Path)
Path
The Path argument is a string specifying either the absolute or relative path of the ASP page being called. The file name must be included in the path. The entire Path must be enclosed inside a pair of quotes. The Path argument cannot include a query string, however, any query string that was available to the calling ASP page will be available to the called ASP page.


The Execute method allows you to call another ASP page from inside an ASP page. When the called ASP page completes its tasks, you are then returned to the calling ASP page.

The Execute method allows you to call another ASP page from inside an ASP page. When the called ASP page completes its tasks, you are then returned to the calling ASP page. The overall effect is very similar to a function or subroutine call. Any text or output from the called ASP page will be displayed on the calling ASP page. The Execute method is a more useful alternative to using server-side includes.

In contrast, the Transfer method allows you to transfer from one ASP page to another without returning to the calling ASP page.

There is one mandatory argument.

Examples

Code:
----------CallingAsp.asp----------
<HTML>
<BODY>

How now <%Server.Execute("CalledAsp.asp")%> cow?

</BODY>
</HTML>

----------CalledAsp.asp----------
<%
Response.Write "pink"
%>
Output:
How now pink cow?
