In my book it says that in order to open a connection to a database you can type:<BR><BR>objConn.ConnectionString = strConnect<BR>objConn.Open<BR><BR>for the strConnect part does it want me to put in the connection string I created to connect to my datastore in that part. If so do I put it in parenthesis and quotes like this?:<BR>("[oledb]<BR>; Everything after this line is an OLE DB initstring<BR>Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Dat a Source=C:Access Databasesfishdb1.mdb;Persist Security Info=False")<BR><BR>Thank you for any help you can give me!<BR>
