I am Using ADO 2.0 to connect to Oracle database through Open Link Lite ODBC driver . Some times while communicating with the database it is showing CATASTROPHIC ERROR ,PROVIDER ERROR . Often I find that while opening the connection to the database it gets hanged . But remaining activities with the server ie. viewing html pages in the same site is possible . I am desparately looking a solution for this . <BR><BR>Regards <BR>bhaskar
