Supposing you have a connection named Conn:

<%
Set RS = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Recordset")
strSQL = "SELECT field_name FROM table WHERE.... ORDER BY...."
RS.Open strSQL, Conn, 1, 1

field_contents = RS("field_name")

%>

It is important that you create the recordset this way and not (as works in Access) with:

<%
strSQL = "SELECT..etc"
Set RS = Conn.Execute(strSQL)
%>
In SQL this gives problems with text fields

<%
set Conn=server.createobject("adodb.connection")
Set RS = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Recordset")
strSQL = "SELECT * FROM people WHERE pwd = " & "'" & Request.ServerVariables("LOGON_USER")& "'"
RS.Open strSQL, Conn, 1, 1
field_contents = RS("fnamn")
response.write field_contents
RS.Close
%>

This results in the following error:
"ADODB.Recordset error '800a0e7d'

The application requested an operation on an object with a reference to a closed or invalid Connection object.

/showroom/admin/insert2.asp, line 23"

Line 23 is "RSE.Open strSQL, Conn, 1, 1"

Any ideas?

You don't have a connection, you only create the Conn object, but you should call the ODBC connection to the database:

<%
Set Conn = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
Conn.Open "DSN=ODBC_Name;SERVER:SQL-Server_Name;UID=sa;PWD=;APP=;DATABASE=Database_Name"

etc etc.

Of course you should make an ODBC connection to the database
