I Normally create an includes connection page for all my SQL connections which make it easy to reference in my asp pages

an example of my connection asp page is

Asp page name - sqlconnection.asp


'Declared SQL connection variables

Dim strSQLSN    ' SQL Server Instance
Dim strSQLDBUN    ' SQL Username
Dim strSQLDBPW    ' SQL Password
Dim strSQLDB    ' SQL Database name

'SQL Server current configuration

strSQLSN = "your-sever-name"                  ' SQL Server Instance
strSQLDBUN = "sql-login-name" ' SQL Username
strSQLDBPW = "your-password"             ' SQL Password
strSQLDB = "your-database-name"                       ' SQL Database name

' Connection String

VirConn = "Provider=SQLOLEDB;Server=" & strSQLSN & ";User ID=" & strSQLDBUN & ";Password=" & strSQLDBPW & ";Database=" & strSQLDB & ";"

Then in the asp pages i want to connect to the db i use


then include

'Open Connect to DB
set dbconn = server.CreateObject ("ADODB.Connection")
    dbconn.connectionstring = VerConn
Hope this helps
