500 error in ASP...seems to work in PHP

500 error in ASP...seems to work in PHP

I manage a number of sites and have a current need to build a simple mail form on one of the ASP.Net sites. I hadn't used my Universal E-mail before but thought it would take care of me easily. I followed the basic instructions in the Getting Started Guide and built a two-line form with a submit button just to make sure I could figure out the basics (intending to build a more complicated form once I was knew what I was doing). I tried it on two ASP.Net host sites. One gave me a generic 500 error with no real info; the other one says:

Microsoft VBScript compilation error '800a0401'

Expected end of statement

/WA_Universal_Email/AspEmail_JS.asp, line 1

var gBodyFormat;

So I used the same instructions and built the same form using PHP and it didn't send me the information I entered in either of the two form fields, but I think I know why that didn't work, but otherwise it shot me an e-mail right away. Any ideas?

The Error is VB Script error, but appears you are using ASP Javascript.

Your page is probably missing the LANGUAGE tag at line 1. make sure you have the following at line:

to tell the ASP processor to use the JavaScript engine instead of the VB Script Engine.
