Hi, I have an application using VB.NET and SQL Server 2005.
I want to convert this DB connection to MYSQL but am having trouble converting the SQL SERVER connection string to MYSQL

The bit I am struggling with is the provider, I have set the user ID, Password and Data Source, but am not sure what the provider should be. (I took all the default options when installing mysql).

Can anyone point me in the right direction as to what the provider name might be, or where I can find it out.

Many thanks
...Steve
