I am very sorry for not being accurate in my description. I need to be more clear.
I have a number of pages that utilize the same code. Since the maintenance issue is great, I decided to put the code in a text file then use the FoxPro FILE2STR function to import the code into every page. Thus, I only have to make a change to one page to update all pages.
The page to import is a collection of HTML and FoxWeb. The problem is that the FoxWeb code will not work. For example:
<!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN">
COLUMN 2 Code
The file, include/leftmenu.txt contains a mix of HTML and FoxWeb code. Specifically, there is code to check to see if M.TWO from SETVAR has a value. For example:
<TABLE WIDTH="100%" CELLPADDING="0" CELLSPACING="0" BGCOLOR="#0000FF">
<A HREF="doone.fwx" class="a3">Login</A><BR>
<A HREF="dotwo.fwx" class="a3">Logout</A><BR>
When the code <%=FILETOSTR('include/leftmenu.txt)%> imports the file INCLUDE/LEFTMENU.TXT the code block <%IF EMPTY(M.TWO)%> does not execute. This is the problem I am having so any advice to get this working is helpful.

As it is, your "Another Script Inserting File" should send the following output:
Name: ContentOfGfname<%Response.Write("Name: "+lcName)%>
The 2nd part is the content of include.txt, which is inserted, but not executed. If you want to execute the code in include.txt, you will need to rename it to include.fwx and call it with Server.Execute:

I have a login script and use SETVAR to carry some information from one page to another. I also have a header script in txt format where I use FILETOSTR to insert the header script. And, the header script has some FoxWeb code. The problem is that the FoxWeb code included header script does not work. I now understand that the txt header script file cannot be compiled so the FoxWeb code does not work when inserted using the FILETOSTR function. Would anyone have an idea as to how to insert a header script wile FoxWeb code into another script? Example:
*Get user name
Another Script Inserting File
*Line below prints out the label name and the value of lcName
*Nothing is written but expect "Name: Joe" to be written
Anyone know how to insert a file with FoxWeb Script so that the FoxWeb script in the inserted file works?
