Hi,

I want to establish a secure connection with ADO to a SQL server, but I want to do it with alternate credentials (ie not the account I am logged on with).  I am using VB to create an application, and I'm using the following connection string:

"Trusted_Connection=Yes;Driver={SQL Server};Server=" & _
        strSQLServer & ";Database=" & strDatabase & ";User Id=" & _
        strSQLUser & ";Password=" & strSQLPassword

It seems to ignore the User ID and Password, and use my currently logged on credentials.

Thanks for the help.

You cannot use TRUSTED CONNECTION if you want to supply userid/passord.  The SQL Server must also be setup to allow SQL Authentication.

Is there a way to encrypt the username and password over SQL Authentication?

Only if you enable the "Force Protocol Encryption":
