Try <%@ VarA %> instead of <%# VarA %>
By the way, VBScript isn't a very powerful way to use ASP.NET. I know you're just starting, but you might be better off starting with VB.NET examples.
Im brand new and have downloaded some very simple code from the net..
<%@ Page language="vbScript" Codebehind="WebForm1.aspx.cs" AutoEventWireup="false" %>
<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.0 Transitional//EN" >
Dim VarA As String
VarA = "My value"
The value of VarA is <b><%# VarA %>.</b>. Did it work?
And all it says is.. "The value of VarA is .. Did it work? "
So the bound variable isnt working.
