I understand there is a way to connect to a SQL database within the Application_Start section of the Global.asax file, however, I have not found a good example of this. I am looking for a sample connect and subsequent reference to the connect object name from VB page behind.

Please let me know if I'm on the wrong track in my thinking or if this is a commonly done coding practice and an example of how to do it showing the Global.asax code and a sample snippet of VB code in the code-behind for a page.

Much thanks ... David
