I'm working on an application that has a slew of database connections throughout. The application is being developed on a system which is 100% disconnected from the server on which it will run. Every time I open a form object or attempt to compile, I have to wait n seconds before the dev environment spits out an error stating the database cannot be found.
The real problem is that there's a single ADO object in the app that has a seemingly infinite waiting time before the error comes up. The error never shows and I consequently, cannot finish the build of the application, nor can I open the form object that contains it. I can change the string by opening the .frm file in notepad, which allows me to open the form object in VB, but it doesn't help when building it.
My question is this: Is there any way to disable the checking of ADO connections during development/build?
