I thought there was an item in the ADO Connection
Properties collection that would tell me if a connection is currently open, but I can't find it.
I'm using VB6, ADO 2.6 and SQL Server 2000.

Any help is appreciated.

The Connection's State property will tell you that.

An "Excellent" answer would have included information regarding the ObjectStateEnum (eg. adStateOpen = 1, so If oConnection.State = adStateOpen Then ' Connection is open).
Thanks for your help !
