There is not a command to test for a internet connection. The Get(ConnectionState) checks the security state of the connection. It does not check for a live connection.

Thanks for your reply.
I worked around it by using the INSERT FROM URL and then trapping error 1631.
I had consider an error trap but though it may be too slow. Glade you found a solution.
Thanks. Now if I could only figure out why my portal blanks out data entry after I remove the last record and try to re-add data. The strange thing is that if I click off the tab control, the data appears again. Or if I exit the layout and go back in, it's there again. Also, if there are multiple "many" records in the portal, removing any one or more of them is fine. It's just the last one. I've removed all the scripts, but can't seem to see what's going on.
