hi,

i am trying to get the hang of asp includes, however i have hit a problem. I have referenced a contact form via an include and its not liking it. I am getting this error:

Microsoft VBScript compilation error '800a0400'

Expected statement

/www/contact/contactinclude.inc, line 3

Option Explicit
^


and this is my code:

<html>
<head>
<title>Welcome to Pinefield Manor</title>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1">
<link rel="stylesheet" href="../css/menustyle.css" type="text/css">
<link rel="stylesheet" href="../css/bodytext.css" type="text/css">
</head>

<body bgcolor="#FFFFFF" text="#000000" leftmargin="0" topmargin="0" marginwidth="0" marginheight="0">
<tr>
<td><!--#include file="../includes/header.inc"-->
<tr>
<td>
<table width="760" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" align="center">
<tr>
<td width="72" valign="top" bgcolor="D4D4D4">
<!--#include file="../includes/menu.inc"--></td>
<td width="688" valign="top">
<p class="maintext"><b><!--#include file="../contact/contactinclude.inc"--></b>
</td>
</tr>
</table>
<table width="760" border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" background="../home/images/bg_line.gif" align="center">
<tr>
<td> </td>
</tr>
</table>
</td>
</tr>
</body>
</html>


and this is the form code:
