Connect to MySql Db from ASP driven website using Dreamweaver

I have looked all over to find a way to connect to a MySql db using DW. I understand that Macromedia does not support connection to MySql from an ASP driven website. I have an IP address + user information to MySql db.

i believe you can use the ODBC connector from the MYSQL site (downloads area) to create a datasource connection which you can access using ASP.

I am using this string to connect:
Dim objConn, objRS
Set objConn = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
Set objRS = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Recordset")
objConn.ConnectionString="DRIVER={MySQL ODBC 3.51 Driver};;DATABASE=volare;UID=volare;PWD=xxxxxx;"
In dreamweaver it shows that the connection is a succes, but I can not see the tables.

The Phakt extension is only for PHP sites. This is an ASP website.
