Hello All

I'm having an issue trying to connect my sql databse from my c# app. It's not allowing me to write out my datasource which is DEAN\NETSDK. For some reason it isn't accepting the backslash in the datasource. How do I fix. Thanks

Dean

Mr. S Sansanwal

Here is my line of code that creates the string i need to access my sql server.

 con= new SqlConnection( "@"  +"Data Source="+FormConfig.DataSource
                          + "\\"
                          +FormConfig.Instance
                          +";Initial Catalog="+FormConfig.InitialCatalog
                          +";Integrated Security ="+FormConfig.IntegratedSecurity);


For some reason its not working, and I'm getting a keyword not supported '@data source' error. What could be the problem?

con= new SqlConnection( @"Data Source="+FormConfig.DataSource
                        + "\\"
                        +FormConfig.Instance
                        +";Initial Catalog="+FormConfig.InitialCatalog
                        +";Integrated Security ="+FormConfig.IntegratedSecurity);
