Use an Include File for your Database Connection String


That way, when a parameter in your connection string changes, you only need to change it in one place versus every web page that utilizes it. Below is an example of an include file called BusRev_dbConnInc.asp and the ASP page that calls it.
 
<%
Function ConnectTo()
		ConnectTo = "DRIVER={SQL
Server};SERVER=ServerName;UID=UserID;PWD=_
Password;DATABASE=DatabaseName"
End Function
%>
<!--#INCLUDE FILE="..\..\dbInclude\BusRev_
dbConnInc.asp"# -->

Dim aConn
Dim aRs
Dim rsTotals
Set aConn = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
Set aRs = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Recordset")
Set rsTotals = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Recordset")
aConn.Open ConnectTo()
%>
