Hi

I have made a database connection (works great) :

<%@ import Namespace="System.Data" %>
<%@ import Namespace="System.Data.SQLClient" %>
Sub page_load
  Dim connection as New SQLConnection("Server=Server; Database= db; UID= admin; PWD=password;")

  connection.Open

  Dim query as String = "SELECT * FROM news ORDER BY ID DESC"
  Dim command as New SQLCommand(query, connection)

  Dim dataReader as SQLDataReader
  dataReader = command.ExecuteReader(CommandBehavior.CloseConnection)

  dataGrid.DataSource = dataReader
  dataGrid.DataBind()

  connection.Close()

end sub

how to make this a global function?
