Hi,

I have an MS Access 2000 application - with a fixed link to tables on an SQL server.  I have set up a File DSN and choosen the "With SQL Server authorisation using a login ID and password supplied by the user" option.

However every time I want to use the application I get a " Connection failed;SQLm State '28000' SQL Server Error: 18456 login failed message - bacause the Login ID defaults to my network login ID.  I can press ok at that stage and then remove tick from the trusted connection box and enter my SQL password but I don't want the user to have to do this every time they use the application.

Can someone tell me how I can get this to default to no trusted connection?

Thanks,

Andrew

You can try this :

Edit the .dsn file (could be present in C:\Program files\Common Files\ODBC\Data sources) in question and include the following key :

TRUSTED_CONNECTION=NO

If you want a specific user name to appear in that dialog box , try adding the following key :
UID=sa
Either sa or whatever is your user name.

If you don't want this dialog box to appear at all, you can add the following key also along with the above two :
PWD=sa
Either sa or whatever is the above UID's password.

Since you're using a File DSN, adding these keys might be sufficient.  If you use a System/User dsn, you can achieve the above using Linked Table Manager.
