An Active Server Page (ASP) is an ASCII text file that contains text, HyperText Markup Language (HTML) elements, and/or ASP script commands. You can use Active Server Pages to create dynamic, interactive Web content. ASP files have the .asp extension.


To use ASP files on a Web server, you must install a script engine that supports the scripting languages used on the Web. Microsoft Internet Information Server (IIS) for Windows NT Server and Windows 2000, Microsoft Peer Web Services for Windows NT Workstation, and Microsoft Personal Web Server for Windows 95 support ASP.

FrontPage Editor continues to support ASP in your FrontPage Webs. ASP files must be located in an executable folder on your Web server. To create ASP files in FrontPage Editor, follow these steps:

  1. On the Insert menu, point to Advanced, and then click Script.
  2. Click to select the Run Script On Server option.
  3. Enter your ASP code in the Script dialog box.
  4. Click OK.

NOTE: You do not need to enter the beginning and ending ASP tags (<% and %>). FrontPage Editor will insert these when you click OK.
