    Default RE: database connection

    Have you made sure that there exists an entry for the database that you are connecting to in the "ODBC Datasources" in your Control Panel? The only other thing that I can think of, looking at your code, is that you may want to capitalize the line like this:<BR>set objconn = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection"). This is probably more a cosmetic change than anything, but I&#039m used to using case-sensitive languages, so it&#039s something you can try.
