Application Security Testing: An Integral Part of DevOps

DSN-Less with ADO

When I try to implement the code that is in MSDN, I receive Run-time error '446' Object doesn't support named arguments.
Dim cn As New ADODB.Connection
Dim rs As New ADODB.Recordset

Const ConnectString = "uid=myname;pwd=mypw;driver={SQL Server};" & _

Private Sub Form_Load()
   With cn
      ' Establish DSN-less connection
      .ConnectString = ConnectString
      .ConnectionTimeout = 10
   End With
It fails on the ConnectString. How can I correct this problem?

You can't create the objects using the New keyword outside of a subroutine. Either move the variable declarations (cn and rs) within the Form_Load event handler, or use this code:

Set cn = New ADODB.Connection
Set rs = New ADODB.Recordset
