i thought he was asking for ODBC connection string. the example he mentioned is using Jet OLEDB for Access.

his question was to use ODBC connection string for SQLSever database.

'MS ACCESS Connection Program

Private Sub cmdConn_Click()
End Sub

Private Sub CmdEnd_Click()
End Sub

Private Sub Form_Load()

End Sub


Global con As New ADODB.Connection
Global rst As New ADODB.Recordset
Sub SetupConn()
    con.Open "Provider=Microsoft.JET.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=" & App.Path & "\Locations.mdb"
    rst.Open "Select * from CompInfo", con, adOpenDynamic, adLockOptimistic
End Sub

'MSSQL SERVER Connection Routine  (RDO)

    Set Eng = New rdoEngine
    Set Cn = New rdoConnection
    'this sets up the event handlers

    With Cn
        .Connect = "Uid=<user>;pwd=<password>;database=<DBname;dsn=<DataSourceName>;" _
        & "trusted_connection=yes"
        .LoginTimeout = 5
        .EstablishConnection rdDriverNoPrompt, True, rdAsyncEnable
