Loss of network/database connection

I have an application that connects to a SQL database across the network.  I have error trapping code in place (on error...) but I can't seem to trap the error then network connectivity is lost to the SQL server or there is another problem that prevents connecting to the database.  My application opens a connection at startup and leaves the connection open since it's reading/writing data every 2-3 seconds.  Is there any way to trap those errors?  If so, I could call a routine that tries to reestablish a connection every 'x' seconds instead of failing with an error message.  Thanks for any help.

If ConnSQL.State <> adStateOpen Then ConnSQL.Open

where ConnSQL is the name of your connection

I thought I had that in place, but maybe I missed some spots.  I'll double check and let you know.  Thanks.
