We have run into some problems in trying to use MTS to manage our DB connections on our ASP pages. We use the following VBScript code to establish our DB connection: <BR><BR>Set objConn = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection") <BR>objconn.Mode = adModeRead <BR>objConn.Open "Provider=MSDAORA.1;" &_ <BR>"Data Source=(databasename);" &_ <BR>"User ID=(userid);" &_ <BR>"Password=(password);" <BR><BR>The code executes fine until we add the following line to the page which causes MTS to handle resource management: <BR><BR>&#060;%@ Transaction = "Required" %&#062; <BR><BR>When that line of code is added, the page returns an error code of 8000ffff with the full text description being "Catastrohic Error". <BR><BR>We are running IIS 4.0 with SP5 installed and have upgraded to MDAC 2.1 SP2. Anyone have any clues? <BR><BR>Thanks in advance!
