My guess is this line

dbConn.Open Application("dbConn_ConnectionString")    

What is this  <<Application("dbConn_ConnectionString")>>

Oh, I get it! you are trying to connect in your global.asa without exposing your connect string.  I've read some serious no no's about doing that!  I think you are just now finding some of the problems with it...

The function appears correct.  Looks like it's using an Interdev created connection?

Change the function to a sub.  Your 'call openDB()' isn't correct.  A function returns a value and you're not putting it anywhere.  Try

<%
Call OpenDB%>

here is the function, what am i missing ??

<SCRIPT LANGUAGE="VBScript" RUNAT="Server">


Dim rs, dbConn

Sub OpenDB()
    Set dbConn = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
    dbConn.ConnectionTimeout = 15
    dbConn.CommandTimeout = 30
    dbConn.Open Application("dbConn_ConnectionString")    

End Sub

Sub CloseDB()
    ' close cursor and database connection
    Set rs = Nothing
    if ucase(TypeName(dbConn)) = "OBJECT" then
         dbConn.Close
         Set dbConn = Nothing
    end if
End Sub
