I am forcing a network failure by unplugging my network cable and I get the following error. General SQL error ODBC SQL Server Driver [DBNETLIB] ConnectionWrite (send()) General Network error. I have many BDE stored procs in my application and as soon as 1 is called after a network failure I get the error. I would like to know when and even how to trap it and how to restore the connection to the database. I have a ODBC connection to SQL Server using Delphi 6. I was wondering if anyone can help me. Thanks in advance.
