Experts,

I need help setting up a SQL Server 2005 db connection using ASP. I have no problem connecting using Access but because SQL doesn't have a physical address to link to, I'm not sure how to set it up. I'm using XP and SQL Server is working fine when I connect using Coldfusion.

Thanks for your help

For SQL Server authentication use this connection string:
Provider=SQLNCLI;Server=YourServerNameGoesHere;Database=YourDatabaseGoesHere;UID=YourUserNameGoesHere;PWD=YourPasswordGoesHere;"

I've tried to set this up like the examples I have for the Access db. Where am I going wrong? - Thank you for your help!

<%
serverName = "BABYRUTH4\SQLEXPRESS"
MyDatabase = "empsolutions"
MyUserId = "sa"
MyPassword = "password"

Set conn1 = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")

conn1.Open "Provider=" & SQLNCLI;Server=serverName;Database=MyDatabase;UID=MyUserId;PWD=MyPassword;

Set RS1      = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Recordset")

%>

Change this:

conn1.Open "Provider=" & SQLNCLI;Server=serverName;Database=MyDatabase;UID=MyUserId;PWD=MyPassword;

To:
conn1.Open "Provider=SQLNCLI;Server=" & serverName & ";Database=" & MyDatabase & ";UID=" & MyUserId & ";PWD=" & MyPassword & ";"
