Thanks in advance for any ideas or input on how to troubleshoot this!<BR><BR>I&#039;m running IIS 5 on Win2kpro with sql server 2000 eval edition. I&#039;m yet to make a connection and i&#039;ve tried using a dsn and connection dsn-less. I can make a dsn and test the connection in Data Sources, and it connects. But if I use that dsn for a connection, I get the "Data source name not found and no default driver specified" error.<BR><BR>When making a dsn-less connection to the same db, it finds the db but gives a "Operation is not allowed when the object is closed." on the line after I specify the driver and where I specify the database. <BR><BR>After many hours and stumping my friends, I hope I can fig this out soon,<BR><BR>THANKS!
