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={SQLServer};SERVER=ServerName;UID=UserID;PWD=_Password;DATABASE=DatabaseName"End Function%>Dim aConnDim aRsDim rsTotalsSet aConn = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")Set aRs = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Recordset")Set rsTotals = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Recordset")aConn.Open ConnectTo()%>
