SQL Password on connection

Hi all, I have the following that works perfectly fine:

Dim da As New SqlDataAdapter
                Dim conn As SqlConnection = New SqlConnection("Data Source=SQLRPT;Initial Catalog=CorpReports;Persist Security Info=True;async=true;User ID=apps;Password=...")
                Dim cmd As New SqlCommand("hsp_rpt_GrossMargin_Web", conn)

BUT, I want to remove the passwords and use this as a trusted connection, like this:

 Dim da As New SqlDataAdapter
                Dim conn As SqlConnection = New SqlConnection("Data Source=SQLRPT;Initial Catalog=CorpReports;Persist Security Info=True;async=true;Trusted_Connection=Yes")
                Dim cmd As New SqlCommand("hsp_rpt_GrossMargin_Web", conn)

Everything works fine for this when filling a grid or a dropdown or calling for data.  The problem I have is when calling a procedure,  it doesn't seem to want to let me do that.  It runs fine from my local machine, but not from the website.  I have given the server login all the permissions to login to the server and get to all of the Databases.  Like I said, it runs fine to allow me to edit, add or pull data from the databases, but will not allow me to run a procedure...

Thanks,
Randy

In the SQL Server Management Studio, set the permission for the DB to allow the accounts to execute.

Right click on the database
Click on Properties
Select Permissions from the list
Add user ASPNET (and you might want to try NT Authority/Network Service if that doesn't do it.)
Scroll down to Execute and check Grant
OK out of it and try again.

If the user does not show up in the pick list when you do this, you may need to:
Go to Security for the SQL Server (also in SSMS)
Right Click on Logins
Select New Login
Search for user and add

Try adding Execute permissions to the account the server is using.  I believe it is the ASPNET account on the web server's machine you will need to use.  It may be Network Service, but I think ASPNET is all you need.

In the Internet Services Manager???  I have changed everything in there I can see..  I did change it to do scripts and executables.  It still will not run the procedures though...

OK, I found in the Stored Procedures (SQL 2000 by the way) where to add EXEC in the checkboxes, so I added that to my Web1$, which is our login, added ALL the checkboxes at the database level, which does not include the EXEC, and it still doesn't work...  runs fine from my local machine and my login isn't even in the list at all...

Hi Shawn, I have decided to convert the ones that will not work to using connection strings that I will just have a password in the web.config file and that seems to work just fine.  I will just have to manually change that password every 6 months...

Thanks,
Randy
