Hi, Reqt. is to replicate data in two DB servers(using Publication & Subscription in SQL Server2000) as data is synchronized , initially I fetch data from First DB server, if its down I go for Secong DB server and fetch the data and vice versa as this procedure continues throughout my application and so need to ping everytime I open a connection to DB server and check whether its running. So, is there any other alternative to test whether connection object is alive to proceed to other server. Thanks, Anil
