That should work in Dreamweaver. You have to create a site, and then go to the applications tab on the right. Click the plus sign to open the connection wizard

A DSN is just a file that has a connection string in to, then in your code you reference the DSN file.

ODBC uses DSN files as well, this is setup on your machine though (Administrator Tools, ODBC Sources)

OLEDB is the connection string you use for connecting to the database, such as SQL. This can be in the DSN, or in the Global.Asa file, or any file that you include into your asp page.

ADO is the code you will use while connecting to the database, to create recordsets.

Does that help, or would you like to see a copy of some code I have for an asp page that connects to a  SQL database and checks for email addresses?

Thats more than enough but I want to clarify one thing.

In my shared hosting account , the hosting company creates DSN for me. which supports ADO.
Now my problem is, How can I use that DSN to connect to the database using Dreamweaver.
It's because they don't allow to connect remotely and select the DSN (using Dreamweaver) they have created for me?...

Any idea.

Thanks in Advance
