If MM_advancewarranty_STRING is a variable name, it shouldn't be
enclosed in quotes

Subject: [thelist] sql/server connectivity question

hoping one of you sql/server gurus can answer this
off the top of your head...

what would you look for to solve this error --

  Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers error '80004005'
  [Microsoft][ODBC Driver Manager] Data source name not found and no
default driver specified
  /QuoteResults2.asp, line 255

the line that's causing the problem is


the value of this variable is

  "dsn=accs; database=BUYERS_CHOICE; uid=IUSR_ATLAS;"

just before this there is the command

  set cn = server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")

i know practically nothing about ASP

any ideas?

take the quotes out of the cn.Open command?

maybe some setting in the sql/server configuration is wrong?
