I am using Asp classic page.

I usually include files from local directory, so far no problem in that one.

Like i use this syntax to include a file in my asp classic page
<!--#include file=""-->  

But when i try to include file from parent directory i can't.

The syntax i used to refer parent directory file is

<!--#include file="../includes/"-->

I'm using Windows xp machine.

So please help me.
It will be more helpful if it is explained with small example.

Thanks in advance

With regards
