Dreamweaver cs4 classic asp dsn sql 2008 http 500 error

Just starting out with classic asp (need to support an old website) Getting a HTTP 500 error when I add a recordset to the webpage. Works fine with an equivilent MS Access database.

Sql DSN passes test connection and passes test/shows recordset, but the very fact the recordset is attached to the page throws the error even before trying to place a field. The driver for the sql 2008R2 system dsn is sql client (have tried sql server, same problem)

Can anyone point me in the right direction, may thanks

Start by turning off "Show Friendly Http Errors" in your browser. That way you will be able to see the actual error message rather than the generic 500 message.

Thanks, good point, but had already done this, what I had not done was to change IIS 7.5 'Send Errosrs to Browser' setting to true.  Having done this the error is with the DSN on line Recordset1_cmd.ActiveConnection. However the DSN checks out OK when tested at the created stage.

I have the following code:
<%@LANGUAGE="VBSCRIPT" CODEPAGE="65001"%>
<!--#include file="Connections/Merlin.asp" -->
<%
Dim Recordset1
Dim Recordset1_cmd
Dim Recordset1_numRows

Set Recordset1_cmd = Server.CreateObject ("ADODB.Command")
Recordset1_cmd.ActiveConnection = MM_Merlin_STRING (**** error on this line)Recordset1_cmd.CommandText = "SELECT BulletinID, BulletinDate, BulletinBody, PostedBy FROM dbo.BULLETIN"
Recordset1_cmd.Prepared = true

Set Recordset1 = Recordset1_cmd.Execute
Recordset1_numRows = 0
%>

The include file code is as follows..
<%
' FileName="Connection_odbc_conn_dsn.htm"
' Type="ADO"
' DesigntimeType="ADO"
' HTTP="false"
' Catalog=""
' Schema=""
Dim MM_Merlin_STRING
MM_Merlin_STRING = "dsn=Merlin;"
%>

Any help appreciated (Runing Dreamwearver CS4 on Win 7, with SQL server 2008 R2)

Have you tried with a DSN-less connection?
