Hello. I am not an ASP coder, but I am familiar with PHP. I am working with a company that uses SQL/ASP for their web-based database system for tracking information. My question is this:

Is there a way to 'include' a single asp page that would contain basic site format and database connection information so that the connects, etc wouldn't have to be coded into each page?

I am not sure if this will work because I see that some reports are using direct calls in the asp page that calls the report so that call links to the DB and then a stored procedure.

Does that mean that a single generic db call in an included page won't work?

Finally, the system is setup for only this one company, internally. I am on board to help them convert their system to be turn-keyed out and leased to other companies in their industry. Thus, why I am making their design more flexible for replication.

Any other suggestions to consider in moving an internal SQL/ASP system into a much more flexible CMS-style system?

Thank you for your time and effort.
