How to Catch DB connection error in ASP??
This is the code I am using to connect to MS Excel DB.

Set cnnGetRows = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
connExcel="Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OleDb.4.0;Data Source="&(url1)&"; Extended Properties=Excel 8.0;"
cnnGetRows.Open connExcel
set rs=server.CreateObject("adodb.recordset")
mysql="SELECT * FROM project_details" mysql,cnnGetRows       <--- I am getting CONNECTION ERROR HERE WHEN THE EXCEL SHEET IS OPENED OR IF THE DATABASE IS NOT DEFINED...

It is showing the usual asp error page and line number, I need to catch this error and display custom message
