How I can get make it working?

var fcontent=new Array();
begintag='<div>'; //set opening tag, such as font declarations

do while NOT rs.EOF

fcontent[<%=sayi%>]='<h1><%=rs("Heading")%></h1><p><%=rs("Content")%><br><div align='right'><a href='<%=rs("link")%>'>Read more</a></div></p> '+
if not rs.Eof then
' <hr><p><h1><%=rs("Heading")%></h1><p><%=rs("Content")%><br><div align='right'><a href='<%=rs("link")%>'>Read more</a></div></p>';

end if

That sounds like an IE error message, one of, if not the most vague error reporting mechanisms in most cases.

The easiest way to debug this kind of situation that I know of (there are others, and it depends to a degree upon personal preference) is to set up the page live. Then view the source code in a browser (my favorite for this is Firefox, with developer tools added) guided by any error(s) reported. This will show what the browser is receiving from the server, so all server side code (if it is executing as expected, as you state) is taken out of the equation. Any javascript errors will then be more easily diagnosed.

If you want more help on this one, post a link to your live page that demonstrates the problem.
