This is how it should look

DbObj.Open "DSN=MyDSN;UID=Admin;PWD=Test"

wkrasner,

Is the double quote mark on that line (line 9) a typo?  If not that command should not start with a double quote.  Also what are the other values?  If they are part of the connection string then it is all one string and should look like this ...

DbObj.Open "DSN=ERS;UID=xxx;Password=xxxxx"           'line 9

Let me know how this helps.  Let me know if you have any questions or need more information.

Thanks you both.  I made the corrections and now get the following error:


The connection cannot be used to perform this operation. It is either closed or invalid in this context.

/getrow.asp, line 9

Amend this line
SET DbObj = CreateObject("ADODB.recordset")

to

SET DbObj = CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")


Have you created a DSN called ERS?

DSN-less connections are actually better - see here
