Invalid Object Name

Experts,

I've inherited a VB.NET application that is bombing on a line where it refers to a local database table I'm trying to access.  The error is "Invalid Object Name".

Initially, I thought the problem was that the previous programmer's credentials were in the webconfig file, so I changed them to mine.  Then I realize that I didn't have permissions on the database in question, so I added myself.  Yet I still get the error.

Ideas?

Check if the application is connecting to correct database and the table / view that you are connecting to exist. Try the query in sql plus or toad to make sure that there is no problem with query
