Hi there<BR><BR>I have an asp application and everytime I call a page, I connect to the database supplying the user id & password.<BR><BR>Is there any way, where I can connect once and call other programs (like we do in VISUAL BASIC)<BR><BR>I understand that the DB connection is quite expensive in terms of time and having connection ONCE will be more useful than connecting in every page..<BR><BR>Please let me know if we can do this and I would appreciate if you can send your replies to<BR><BR>prabhakar.narayanan@clsasia.com
