I have been playing with ODBC in vbscript I cannot use Macros. I am trying to connect to a database. Once I am connected then I can query the records within it,... but my code is throwing an error. 'object required'

Session.timeout = 15
Set conn = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
conn.open "DB1","test","testpass"
Set Session("mydb") = conn

conn.close
set conn = Nothing

Session.timeout wont work in a vbscript, it is for asp

Can you clarify because other posters are assuming that this all sits in an ASP web page and I am assuming that this is in a .VBS script file run from a windows machine and NOT from a web server/page?

Wich is it please?
