Title Create and Write Log File
Description The subprocedure can be called by any ASP applicaiton/page which needs to create a log entry each time it is accessed. This can then be checked at a later stage by an administrator for example, to determine who/how/when details concerning a given application/ASP page. As it stands at the moment the log subprocedure records the data&time, client IP address, and path of the application/page which called the function to each entry made in the log file.
