The Symptoms You Get 800A03F6
The script does not execute as you hoped, instead you get a WSH error message.
The Cause of Error 800A03F6
The underlying cause error 800A03F6 of is a syntax omission, you are missing an ‘EndIF’ or and ‘End’ statement. When you have nested If’s or nested Else IF statements, then the chances of omitting one of the closing End statements increases dramatically. Note that the Source: is telling us it’s a compilation error, meaning faulty syntax.
This a mixture of logic and syntax. Check each ‘If’, or ‘Else If’ statement and ensure there is a corresponding End If command. As ever, check the Line: number, in my example there are not enough ‘End If’ statements corresponding to the ‘Else If’ statements.
Example of Error 800A03F6 Script
Here is the critical section of the script, which contains multiple ‘Else If’ statements. In the problem script there is one too few ‘End If’ closing statements. For clarity I have left a blank line where the missing statement should be.
