' for Sql Server
Dim connectionString As String = "server=P-III; database=programmersheaven;" + _
The above code is from the on-line tutorial
Can somebody explain the above string for me? For example, "server=P-III", is this the name of the computer that has the database? And "database=programmersheaven", How does this correspond to the database on the hard disk? Do we not need to give the complete path and file extension, e.g. "database=c:programmersheaven.mdf"? I am completely lost on this and cannot get the on-line example to work. It sticks at the DataAdapter so I assume I have an incorrect connectionstring.
