A client provided me the following information about his SQL Server installation:

I'm using the SQL Server ODBC driver in from the Control Panel / ODBC Data Sources.  I'm using the one marked:
SQL Server
Version: 2000.85.1117.00
Date: 8/4/2004
Server Name: server1
Database Name:: data1
Password: mypass

Can somebody please provide me with the connection string I should use in VB6 code in order to connect to his database?

Thanks in advance for your assistance.
