Can we see the contents of line 29 (or a chunk of code relating to that line)?

Quick guess.

It's possible that the connection information (DNS string) was trashed by your update.

Line 29 contains the code for a "drag'n'drop" Recordset object.  As it is a GUI object I do not want to change the code - I only modify the properties of the object.

Code follows:  error line marked with (*).  BTW, if I comment out the line, the next one gives an error, and so on.

<!--#INCLUDE FILE="../_ScriptLibrary/Recordset.ASP"-->
<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="JavaScript" RUNAT="server">
function _initrsAgent()
      var DBConn = Server.CreateObject('ADODB.Connection');
(*)      DBConn.ConnectionTimeout = Application('BulkConn1_ConnectionTimeout');
      DBConn.CommandTimeout = Application('BulkConn1_CommandTimeout');
      DBConn.CursorLocation = Application('BulkConn1_CursorLocation');
      DBConn.Open(Application('BulkConn1_ConnectionString'), Application('BulkConn1_RuntimeUserName'), Application('BulkConn1_RuntimePassword'));
      var cmdTmp = Server.CreateObject('ADODB.Command');
      var rsTmp = Server.CreateObject('ADODB.Recordset');
      cmdTmp.ActiveConnection = DBConn;
      rsTmp.Source = cmdTmp;
      cmdTmp.CommandType = 1;
      cmdTmp.CommandTimeout = 10;
      cmdTmp.CommandText = 'SET ROWCOUNT 0 SELECT * FROM Agent';
      rsTmp.CacheSize = 10;
      rsTmp.CursorType = 3;
      rsTmp.CursorLocation = 3;
      rsTmp.LockType = 3;
      if (thisPage.getState('pb_rsAgent') != null)
function _rsAgent_ctor()
      CreateRecordset('rsAgent', _initrsAgent, null);
function _rsAgent_dtor()
      thisPage.setState('pb_rsAgent', rsAgent.getBookmark());

Let's look at:

Application(BulkConn1_ConnectionTimeout) = ???

in global.asa

Solved my problem.  Thanks for your attempts.  It worked out that when you create a project through INTERDEV, it doesn't create the local web as an application.  

Until I find the solution, the workaround is to modify the local web and set it to be an application.
I found this out when all ASP code that requires Appliactions (such as server.application) breaks with th esame error.

I reduced the point score to 100.
