Error 3709 in ASP application

dodgerfan used Ask the Experts™
I'm getting Error 3709: The connection cannot be used to perform this operation. It is either closed or invalid in this context. I cannot find where this is happening. I've included the code below. Any help is appreciated.

Dim socon as ADODB.Connection: Set socon = dbC
Dim sorec1 As ADODB.Recordset
Set sorec1 = New ADODB.Recordset
Dim cmd As ADODB.Command: Set cmd = New ADODB.Cmd
Dim socomm1 As ADODB..Connection

sorec1.Open socomm1, , , , adCmdText

l_EventID = CLng(g_eventid)
Return_Value = 0
g_CreatorID = CLng(Session("UserID"))

With cmd
  Set .ActiveConnection = socon
  .CommandText = SP_CREATEFORM
  .CommandType = adCmdStoredProc
  .Parameters.Append .CreateParameter("@Return_Value", adInteger, adParamReturnValue, , Return_Value)
  .Parameters.Append .CreateParameter("@EventID", adInteger, adParamInput, , l_EventID)
  .Parameters.Append .CreateParameter("@CreatorID", adInteger, adParamInputOutPut, , g_CreatorID)
.Execute , , adExecuteNoRecords
End With

Set sorec1 = Nothing
DropCn socon, cmd

I think the error source is "sorec1.Open  socomm1, , , , adCmdText"
You just declare the connection "socomm1" before using it without opening.
