Global database connection string in Win

    Is there a way to have one connection string, in this case an OleDbConnection to an Access database, that can be accessed globally from more than one class?  Is it possible to have one connection string that covers an entire application?  Thanks for any help.

    You could declare it as a constant in the root namespace (ie MyApp), and then access it using MyApp.GlobalConnectionString or something.....
