    Hi there soupi,

    I know absolutely nothing about "asp", but I do know how to "Google".

    "To create a comment in ASP you simply place an apostrophe in front of
    what you want commented out.

    The most common practice is to place the apostrophe at the beginning
    of the line of text like we have in the following example."

       'Hello I am a comment
        Dim newVar1, newVar2
       'Dim oldVar1, oldVar2

    "In the above example we had two comments.

    The first comment was a note style comment.

    Programmers often use these kinds of comments to leave information to
    people who are going to read their code or to themselves.

    The second comment we created commented out "Dim oldVar1, oldVar2"
    preventing the ASP interpreter from reading this line of code.

    This kind of comment is a block-out comment that is often used to
    temporarily remove code from a file that may be causing errors or is just
    unnecessary at the time.
