it highlights the following code

In order to help with this we need to see the class this line of code is defined in, please post.

Yes basically saying that Sitecode is not declared, show us the code where this is declared in openDB.vb if it is, and also the start of the Sitecode class if you have it.

Hi Fernando, this what you require?
Public Class openDB
    Public Shared Sub AddTarget(ByVal TargetName As String, ByVal nt_name As String)
        Dim aDb As New ADODB.Connection
        aDb = SiteCode.openDBConnection(aDb)
        aDb.Execute("EXECUTE [TEST_DB].[dbo].[AddTarget] '" & TargetName & "','" & nt_name & "'")
    End Sub

blossomparkAuthor Commented: need where it says SiteCode=
Fernando SotoRetiredCommented:
Show or upload the file that code is in. We need to see where you declare SiteCode where you use it in the code.
blossomparkAuthor Commented:
searched complete solution for  " sitecode= " and a few variations of this.
Not there.
Therein lies the issue I guess
Fernando SotoRetiredCommented:
Well if that is the case then you are missing an instantiation of the variable. You will need to figure out where to do that.
Fernando SotoRetiredCommented:
See where this is defined in your solution, openDBConnection.
Paul JacksonSoftware EngineerCommented:
It sounds like you are missing the class Sitecode from the project, try searching for just sitecode across the whole project or try looking at where you store your source code to see if there is a file you are missing. It may be that it is a completely separate project that is compiled and then referenced by your other project too.
