I'm new to Visual Studio.  I have a inventory form intended for a handheld computer that will connect to the server SQL database via wireless.  Although the database shows in the explorer and server windows and I can preview data, when I run debug the the application will not connect to the database.  Here's my VB code for the connection string.  Thank you in advance for your help, it's greatly appreciated.
<Global.System.Diagnostics.DebuggerNonUserCodeAttribute()>  _
        Private Sub InitConnection()
            Me._connection = New Global.System.Data.SqlClient.SqlConnection
            Me._connection.ConnectionString = "data source=DC1; user id=xx; pwd=xxxxx; initial catalog=Jeff;database=Jeff; Integrated Security=True;"
        End Sub

I am having a similar problem.  I get an sqlexception number 6, with no useful message (compact framework limitation I suppose)

I solved my problem.  See http://blogs.msdn.com/sql_protocols/archive/2005/10/22/483684.aspx.
In my case in the SQL Configuration Manager -> SQL Server 2005 Services, the SQL Server Browser was not running.
