Can a classic asp application use a web.config file for connection string purposes? Instead of updating each file that has the connection string i just wat to update the web.config file or just one file.

Don't think so since they are two completely different technologies.  

What you can do is just parse the web.config file using an XML parsing routine to get the values you want out of it.  Or when the asp.net application starts, you can write out a simple text file with the connection strings to a file that's easier for you to read in ASP.

Never seen examples of using global.asa to store connection strings. Maybe I should do some search.

I think you both are missing the point of the question.  abussie just wants to store the connection string in ONE place, and he'd like to do it in web.config of an asp.net application.   He wants ASP to read these values.

asp doesn't read config files i just stored the connection strings on a file in the virtual directory and used an include statement to add the file to the code.
