Using LogFile class

How to create and use LogFile class in ASP, VBS and VBA (VB, Excel, Word, ..)

      You can create the LogFile object by CreateObject method or function

Dim LogFile
'Create LogFile object
Set LogFile = CreateObject("ScriptUtils.LogFile")
Set LogFile = Wscript.CreateObject("ScriptUtils.LogFile")
Set LogFile = Server.CreateObject("ScriptUtils.LogFile")

2. VBA (VB 5/6, Excel, Word, ...)
      See menu, Project->References (Tools->References) and add reference to "Script Utilities library".
Then you can use
Dim Log As New ScriptUtilities.LogFile
Dim Log As ScriptUtilities.LogFile
Set Log = CreateObject("ScriptUtils.LogFile")
3. Active Server Pages
      LogFile class is both threaded (thread-safe) class. So you can have one common LogFile object for whole application. The object can be created by <Object> tag in global.asa:
<OBJECT id=LogFile Scope="Application" ProgID="ScriptUtils.LogFile" RunAt="Server"></OBJECT>
<SCRIPT language=VBScript RUNAT="Server">

Sub Application_OnStart
  LogFile.TemplateFileName = "D:\Log\Y2%y%m%d.Log"
  LogFile.LocalDateTime = False
End Sub

      Then you can use LogFile object in each of ASP from the ASP application:

  LogFile.Log Request.ServerVariables("SCRIPT_NAME"), Session.SessionID, _
    Value1, ...
