Documented Error of the Month: ASP Classic error 0208 : 80004005 (Generic request collection)
Error: error 'ASP 0208 : 80004005' Cannot use generic Request collection /_private/footer_content.inc, line 72 Cannot use the generic Request collection after calling BinaryRead.
Explanation:

Although you can use the generic request collection, as in Request("SomeValue"), for either Request.Form("SomeValue") or Request.QueryString("SomeValue"), it's best to avoid the generic request collection until it's really needed. The generic request collection causes problems in some circumstances. For example, you cannot call the generic request collection after a BinaryRead.

Response.Write "NV is " & StateList("NV")

Tip of the Month
Although you can use the generic request collection, as in Request("SomeValue"), for either Request.Form("SomeValue") or Request.QueryString("SomeValue"), it's best to avoid the generic request collection until it's really needed. Use a For Each loop to loop through elements.
