in the above code i want to create a file with the persons name,
and then write their message to it.
but i want to do it on the space provided by
but when i click on the button "hit me" i get an error on page.
i tried just putting name+".txt" in the first parameter in the
filecreate function. But i get the same error.

in my "server space", i guess thats what it is called, i have a folder
named 'messages'.

is there a correct way to do this? or am i attempting something that is
not fesable.

The activeX object would write the file to the user's computer if they have the settings set to allow it to happen.

If I remember correctly, freewebs has a contact us form in their options. Why don;t you use that?
