MS ADO Connection string to Sun One ADO Connection string

Hi, I am using the following format, which works in a stand-alone  VB 6 application.

         
cnn.Open "Driver={SQL Server};" & _
           "Server=server.ip.com;" & _
           "Address=server.ip.com,1433;" & _
           "Database=dbname;" & _
           "Uid=dbuser;" & _
           "Pwd=dbpass"

When I try using this wtih the Sun One ADO object, it complains.  The following is the error:

SQLState: 28000 Native Error Code: 4002 [DataDirect][ODBC SQL Server Driver][SQL Server] SQLState: 01S00 Native Error Code: 0 [DataDirect][ODBC SQL Server Driver]Invalid connection string attribute

Anyone know where to look?

You can try this:

strConnectString = "Provider=sqloledb;Data Source=(local); initial catalog = DatabaseName; user Id= sa; password= yourpassword"

cnn.open strConnectString

Free Tool: Subnet Calculator

The subnet calculator helps you design networks by taking an IP address and network mask and returning information such as network, broadcast address, and host range.

One of a set of tools we're offering as a way of saying thank you for being a part of the community.

Also, 1433 is standard port, so probably don't need that, and probably don't need address -

cnn.Open "Driver={SQL Server};" & _
           "Server=ipaddress;" & _
           "Database=dbname;" & _
           "Uid=dbuser;" & _
           "Pwd=dbpass"

I think Address caused that error "Invalid connection string attribute"

ok, when I take the address line out - this is what happens:

SQLState: S1000 Native Error Code: 11 [DataDirect][ODBC SQL Server Driver][libssclient18]General network error. Check your network documentation. SQLState: 01000 Native Error Code: 11 [DataDirect][ODBC SQL Server Driver][libssclient18]ConnectionOpen (,()). SQLState: 01S00 Native Error Code: 0 [DataDirect][ODBC SQL Server Driver]Invalid connection string attribute

Could it be that the drivers on the server are not configured properly?  I am using a  hosting account to try to connect to this database.

Note that I have connected to the DB from multiple IPs from the VB program I mentioned.

Let me know if there is anything else I can provide to help diagnose the problem

Any luck with the oledb solution I suggested? It is doubtful that it will fix your problem but will only take a minute to try.

What version SQL server is it?  Have you update your MDAC to 2.8?

Ahh! Looks like I have to create a system DSN.  I will try this.
