I have an ASP application that uses a local database to present detailed information for a group of people. The code also attempts to access another database on a remote server to provide some additional information. What I would like to do is force the app to include this extra data when the datastore is available and exclude it when it is not. I thought that I could do this using the error object, but instead of getting an error I can handle, the server gives me a timeout error message page.<BR><BR>Is there a way to force the ASP service to return control if it cannot access a remote database?<BR><BR>Thanks.<BR><BR>Joel<BR><BR>joelga rzatx (a) hotmail.com
