I have recently received code that is not mine and is above my head. I am
use to connecting to the datasource with a call like this on every page:

String strConnection = "server=; database=MyOnline; User ID=sam;
However, my new programming friends have send me code where I only call this
once in the web.config file. I know it works in thier build. I'm trying
to run this from my development environment. Any thoughts?
