I work in an Intranet development where security is light. Other developers/admins can see connection strings,DSNs,IDs/Passwords.<BR>I&#039ve compiled the database connection open and close into a dll.<BR>It works but is there any inherent drawbacks such as processor time or resource hog, etc?<BR>I&#039m asking in the advanced since I don&#039t think most here are experienced at writing their own dlls.
