Sorry I am just a beginner to vb and I am using vb 6 Enterprise edition.
When I do,

 Public cn As Connection
 Private Sub cmdLogin_Click()
 Set cn = New Connection

 So as soon as I type the word "New" in the above statement a list is appearing having word "Collection" but its not  having "Connection". But iam having a project done by my friend and when I checked the same it showed "Connection" in that pop up list. So what is the problem? Thanks.

You probably don't have a reference set to use DAO or ADO.

Check your friends references and compare them to yours and you'll probably see a difference in VB toolbar (Project | References)

In line with ampapa's suggestion above, I've found that code readability, especially 6 months after I last looked at it, is greatly improved by DIMming everything with the type library it comes from, i.e.,
Public cn As ADODB.Connection
...
Set cn = New ADODB.Connection

etc.

For what it's worth...
