We have Windows 2000 server and when I open one page of the site, which has a database query, then the server show me this error.

Microsoft VBScript runtime error '800a01fb'
An exception occurred: 'RSCon.Open'

Perhaps the recordset was not closed properly:

Try this :

if not isObject("objRS") then
     set objRS=Server.CreateObject("ADODB.RecordSet")
end if
if objRS.state <> 0 then
end if
objRS.Open strTableNameOrSQL,objConnection

Are you connecting to access? Look at your MDAC version.

If your database is access and you might not be closing correctly your connection objects (or you have some traffic on the site) then you will have this error..
at the end always close the recordsets and connections like:

RS.Close : set RS = nothing
Conn.close : Set Conn = nothing

if you are having traffic then upgrade to a server based database or increase the simultanous connections in access (but this won't affect well the performance)

I close all recordsets and connection, and take the variables to nothing  after that. My database is SQL SERVER and INFORMIX.

I use the same connection on one same page .asp, but not until 100 times, I often use only one connection to open a recordset and then to do a connection.execute(sql).
