Simply do the following:

1. Create a blank text file
2. Rename the text file extension to .UDL
3. Double click the file (it will open in the UDL editor) and fill in the property pages.

If you open the UDL file in Notepad you'll see the connection string that it has built.

Its a standard connection string
