    Declarative stuff:

    'DSNless stuff
    Private mobjConnect   'The object containing the connection.. declare it at whatever level you need.
    ' or you could specifically type it so you can see all the properties and
    ' methods assciated with in VBPrivate mobjConnect As ADODB.Connection
    'These are the variables you'll need for connection or if you're a savage 
    ' you can hard code them in to the method.
    Private DB_NAME As String
    Private SERVER_NAME As String
    Private DB_USER As String
    Private DB_PASS As String
    Then as a property in the db class or just create it as a standard function:

    Friend Property Get dbConnect() As Variant
    'Private function GetdbConnect as variant
      'Attempt to get a connection object.
      If mobjConnect = Empty Or Not IsObject(mobjConnect) Then
        ' Don't check if there was an error
        'Let the error permeate back to the calling object to report the error.
        Set mobjConnect = CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
        'or use Dim objTmpConnect As New ADODB.Connection
        mobjConnect.ConnectionTimeout = 90
        If mbolWinAuth Then
          'Use trusted
          mobjConnect.ConnectionString = "Provider=SQLOLEDB" + ";SERVER=" + SERVER_NAME + ";DATABASE=" + DB_NAME + _
                             ";Trusted_Connection=Yes;APP=MyApp" & App.Major & "." & App.Major & "." & App.Revision
          'Use application or client defined
          mobjConnect.ConnectionString = "Provider=SQLOLEDB" & ";SERVER=" & SERVER_NAME & ";DATABASE=" & _
                                      DB_NAME & ";User ID=" & DB_USER & ";Password=" & DB_PASS
        End If
        ' open connection
      End If
      Set dbConnect= mobjConnect 'Return ref to connection object
    End Property
    So you then have this dbConnect object (or a reference to it) that you can use to execute SQL/sp's:

    Dim objRS
      Set objRS = CreateObject("ADODB.Recordset")
      Set objRS = dbConnect.Execute("Select blah from blah")
      If Not objRS.EOF Then
        ??? = objRS.GetRows
       ??? = objRS.Fields("column_Name").Value
    Thats basically it...

    Some days you're the bug, some days you're the windscreen.
