Hi Experts,
I'm trying to open a connection to sql server using sqlclient class. I'm getting the following error:

Keyword not supported: 'provider'.
Description: An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of the current web request. Please review the stack trace for more information about the error and where it originated in the code.

Your connection string should look like one of the following depending upon your authentication method:

#    SqlConnection (.NET)


    *  Standard Security:
      "Data Source=Aron1;Initial Catalog=pubs;User Id=sa;Password=asdasd;"
         - or -
      "Server=Aron1;Database=pubs;User ID=sa;Password=asdasd;Trusted_Connection=False"
         (booth connection strings produces the same result)


    *  Trusted Connection:
      "Data Source=Aron1;Initial Catalog=pubs;Integrated Security=SSPI;"
         - or -
      "Server=Aron1;Database=pubs;Trusted_Connection=True;"
         (booth connection strings produces the same result)

          (use serverName\instanceName as Data Source to use an specifik SQLServer instance, only SQLServer2000)

    *  Connect via an IP address:
      "Data Source=190.190.200.100,1433;Network Library=DBMSSOCN;Initial Catalog=pubs;User ID=sa;Password=asdasd;"

          (DBMSSOCN=TCP/IP instead of Named Pipes, at the end of the Data Source is the port to use (1433 is the default))

    *  Declare the SqlConnection:

          C#:
          using System.Data.SqlClient;
          SqlConnection oSQLConn = new SqlConnection();
          oSQLConn.ConnectionString="my connectionstring";
          oSQLConn.Open();



          VB.NET:
          Imports System.Data.SqlClient
          Dim oSQLConn As SqlConnection = New SqlConnection()
          oSQLConn.ConnectionString="my connectionstring"
          oSQLConn.Open()

Regards,

Aeros

may be it just neglects provider in .net 2002...

try giving some junk value like provider="junkxxx" and see if it throws any error in .net 2002
