Database connection error after moving files and recalculating links

Database connection error after moving files and recalculating links

Database connection error after moving files and recalculating links

I have a database results page (asp) on my site that uses a DNS and has worked fine since I got it up.  Recently, I did some revisions on the local version -- I created some new folders and moved files around; all files were renamed by Frontpage and I got no error messages.  After this, I recalculated the hyperlinks and published it to the web server on my local machine (I use this for testing).  The results page now displays wording in the results form field indicating it can not find the DNS.  If I go back to edit the page and re-open the database results wizard, Step 2 gives me an error message "The server encountered an error while processing the database request."  Is this occurring because the DNS is not on my local web server or might it be something else?
