    Maybe your connection string looks like this?<BR><BR>"DSN=foo;UID=user;PWD=password"<BR><B R>Make sure a system ODBC DSN with the same name exists on the other machine. Look in start/settings/control panel..<BR><BR>Frequently also happens if the connection string is empty, as from a Session var not set up.<BR><BR>Good luck.
