I just made the switch to .net. I am trying to setup a dataadapter. I am connecting to a SQL 2000 database. I drag and drop a table from the server explorer on to my form, this creates a SqlConnection1 and a SqlDataAdapter1. I click on Configure data adapter. The wizard pops up. The dropdown box for "which data connection should be used" dose not show the SqlConnection1. The only way to get the connection to work is to click on new connection and set up a new one. Should I be able to see the SqlConnection1 connection that was created. I am on a XP Pro Computer.
