Today, I am using MS Access database files but need to move to maxDB.
Can anyone provide connection string for maxDB 7.5. to replace the current one below ?
Thanks for your help.

        'Get the Database Path, to be used in DB Connection String
        Dim sDBPath As String = Request.MapPath(".") & "\db\bingo.mdb"

        'Define DB Connection String
        Dim sCnnString As String = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.Oledb.4.0;" & _
                                   "Data Source=" & sDBPath

        'Populate Connection Object
        Dim conn As New OleDbConnection(sCnnString)

You need ODCB.NET data provider with this connection string

Dim strConn As String = "DRIVER={MaxDB};SERVER=localhost;DATABASE=TEST;UID=DBA;PWD=DBA;"
