Hi experts,
I am having trouble finding a good connection string to use for custom mssql tcp/ip ports, not the default one (1433). My current connection string is:

Provider=SQLOLEDB.1;Password='+sedit2.Text+';Persist Security Info=True;User ID='+sedit1.Text+';Initial Catalog=GAMEDB;Data Source='+scombobox1.Text

Thanks

I didn`t quite get it where to place the comma so if you can insert it in my connection string posted would be great.

Many Thanks,
Cypher

this site has saved me a bunch of times when I was in this kind of situation: http://www.connectionstrings.com/

what you need to change is:

Provider=SQLOLEDB.1;Password='+sedit2.Text+';Persist Security Info=True;User ID='+sedit1.Text+';Initial Catalog=GAMEDB;Data Source='+scombobox1.Text+','+portEdit.text
