I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

This is the exact error I am getting:

Microsoft VBScript runtime error '800a01f4'

it looks like the variable should be defined by this line:
<!--#include file="../../../Connections/memberspro.asp" -->

but I guess that either the file is not there, or the variable is spelled differently

This is the string that its suppose to connect to:  It's a dummy string...

Dim sConnString
'You MUST adjust the connection string to connect to the 'members.mdb' database
'It is recommended that you use the physical path to the your database
sConnString="PROVIDER=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0; Data Source=e:\virtwww\mywebsite\memberspro\members.mdb"
'sConnString = "DRIVER={Microsoft Access Driver (*.mdb)};DBQ=e:\virtwww\mywebsite\memberspro\members.mdb"
'***** The file 'path.asp' will help you find the physical path to 'members.mdb', run it if you need.
'You may also choose to move the database to a more secure folder outside the root directory

This is the string connecting to the database

' FileName="Connection_odbc_conn_dsn.htm"
' Type="ADO"
' DesigntimeType="ADO"
' HTTP="true"
' Catalog=""
' Schema=""
Dim MM_memberspro_STRING
MM_memberspro_STRING = "dsn=southasi-members;uid=salmembers;pwd=imagine23=1973;"

So what do I do?

Right now you are GOD to me.  It worked!  I could kiss you right now.  I used: oConnection.Open(memberspro) and I checked my database and the information stored.
