Hi there,
I have the following in my web.config:

configuration>
      <appSettings/>
      <connectionStrings>
            <add name="Oracle FCCI_BH ConnectionString" connectionString="Data Source=SALANORA;Persist Security Info=True;User ID=FCCI_BH;Password=fcciadmin;Unicode=True" providerName="System.Data.OracleClient"/>
      </connectionStrings>
      <system.web>


How to retrieve my connectionString assigned above in my web.config file and place it into normal string variable?

Dim Conn_Str as String = ?...... the connectionString from web.config .....?

Thanks in advanced
Salan
