I can think a few basic things to check.

The syntax of the include statement:

<!--#include file=****xx.asp-->

where '****xx' is the file name.

If the file to be included is in a different directory, make sure the path is correct.

The path should be a relative path.

The path has to be under the directory for the web data.

If in doubt about the path, copy the file to be included into the same directory as the file that includes the file as a matter of testing.

Hope this helps.
