connection string to MSDE database

tpadhutpadhu Posts: 43Member

I'm developing smart device application in VB.NET.

I couldn't make the connection with MSDE.

I used the following connection string.

myConnection = "server=;Integrated Security=SSPI;User ID=sa;Initial Catalog=Example;Data Source=PPLSQLSERVER;Trusted_Connection=yes;"

MSDE is on the same machine where i'm developing my apps. & testing the result with emulator. (NOt using RDA or Replication).Simply using ADO.NET commands to select a table from MSDE engine.

Please help me to solve this. I need it urgently.

1) Windows apps working well with this connection string.

Thank You.

    : : myConnection = "server=;Integrated Security=SSPI;User ID=sa;Initial Catalog=Example;Data Source=PPLSQLSERVER;Trusted_Connection=yes;"

    Try this...

    myConnection="SERVER=;DATABASE=Example;Integrated Security=SSPI;"

    Test your connection with OSQL to verify the information. Make sure ifyou have a instance name it is appended after the server name ''.
