    seems like someone added it manually .. i haven't seen any settings of that sort in web.config

    is it within the <appSettings> tag
    like this
    <add key=MM_CONNECTION_HANDLER .. then it must have been added by someone .. am not aware of any third party control making changes to web.config ... u could check that out too ...

    Hi countrycluber,
    This code is generated by dreamweaver when you are Defining an OLEDB Connection to a database....
    anything with an MM at the start is a Dreamweaver Customer tag there are a few examples here :

        <add key="MM_CONNECTION_HANDLER_connDataGrid"                        
    value="default_oledb.htm" />
        <add key="MM_CONNECTION_STRING_connDataGrid"                        
    Data Source=C:\Inetpub\wwwroot\datagrid\db\realty.mdb;" />
        <add key="MM_CONNECTION_DATABASETYPE_connDataGrid" value="OleDb" />
        <add key="MM_CONNECTION_SCHEMA_connDataGrid" value="" />
        <add key="MM_CONNECTION_CATALOG_connDataGrid" value="" />

    Hope this helps
