Hi
I'm using VB6 with access97,
one of my forms contains an adodc,
can I give a connection string after the application starts instead of
putting it in the connectionString property in the properties window?
I need to do so because my connection string is created after the application start running.
I tried putting on sub Form_Load the following code:
adodc.connectionString strConn
But it didnt work.
Thanks .

Yes, you can declare every thing you want inside your app and then call the connection.
Here is some sample code I've used.

Dim cnn3 As ADODC.Connection
Dim strCnn3 As String

Set cnn3 = New ADODC.Connection
strCnn3 = "Provider=SQLOLEDB.1;Persist Security Info=False;User ID = _ sa;Password=password;InitialCatalog=ADVANCE_DEV;Data Source=ZEUS"
cnn3.Open strCnn3
' then set the chassis serial number
If strYear = "2003" Then
cnn3.Execute "UPDATE VBLD_CHASSIS_SERIAL SET CHASSIS_SERIAL = (SELECT     '1' + [YEAR] + RIGHT(STR(SEQUENCE), 4) -1 From VBLD_CHASSIS_SERIAL WHERE ORDER_NO = '" & txtOrder & "') WHERE ORDER_NO = '" & txtOrder & "'"
Else
cnn3.Execute "UPDATE VBLD_CHASSIS_SERIAL SET CHASSIS_SERIAL = (SELECT     '1' + [YEAR] + RIGHT(STR(SEQUENCE), 4) From VBLD_CHASSIS_SERIAL WHERE ORDER_NO = '" & txtOrder & "') WHERE ORDER_NO = '" & txtOrder & "'"
End If

Sorry, if you want to connect to access you will need a connection string along the lines of;

Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Password="";Data Source=E:\temp\eScheduling51\Export\DataWarehouse.mdb;Persist Security Info=True

the string shown in the previous note shows a connection to an ms SQL database

I've just noticed a spelling mistake in my answer, everywhere you see ADODC should be replaced with ADODB

For a data control you would need to do this;

    With Adodc1
        .ConnectionString = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Password="";Data Source=E:\temp\eScheduling51\Export\DataWarehouse.mdb;Persist Security Info=True"
        .CommandType = adCmdUnknown
        strSQL = "SELECT * FROM Table "
        .RecordSource = strSQL
    End With
