Connection string error: Requested value 'ConnectionStrings' was not found
Posted on 2008-10-24
I'm using ASP.NET 2.0 with VB and I added a table adapter to my dataset that has a bunch of other adapters. no problem here. The adapter needed a new conn string so I added one - with a period in the string name ("DataWarehouse.ETL"). Once I did that my website won't build and I get the following error:
"Failed to load dataset because of the following error: Requested value 'ConnectionStrings' was not found."
Everything I've read about the error says that removing the "." from the string and building the site will work, but my project is still hosed. I've restarted VS, restarted the dev box and it's still not working - help?
