Hi,
How to start SQL Server 2000 and use it for .net application.

i have used SQL connection as

SqlConnection connection = new SqlConnection("Data Source=LOCAL;DataBase=ecomm;User ID=sa;Password=comt");
string strSelect = "SELECT productname FROM walts WHERE productid='" + TextBox1.Text + "'";
SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand(strSelect, connection);
connection.Open();

I have an error at connection.Open()  saying

SQL Server does not exist or access denied.

Description: An unhandled exception occurred during the execution of the current web request. Please review the stack trace for more information about the error and where it originated in the code.

Exception Details: System.Data.SqlClient.SqlException: SQL Server does not exist or access denied.

i am using .net1.1/c#/sql server2000.
thanks

Try it as:
SqlConnection connection = new SqlConnection("uid=sa;pwd=comt;server=localhost;database=ecomm");
string strSelect = "SELECT productname FROM walts WHERE productid='" + TextBox1.Text + "'";
SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand(strSelect, connection);
connection.Open();

Open in new window

Assuming that the password is correct for the SA user...

first thing that pops to my mind, is what does local resolve to?  go to the cmd prompt and ping LOCAL and see if it returns Pings.  If it returns pings, go to the sql server and do a netstat -na from the servers cmd prompt.  look for an entry that looks like this:  TCP  0.0.0.0:1433   0.0.0.0:0   Listening  (if you see this then your server is listening on the default SQL port.
