Hello do you have to add the web.config provider to your connectionstring if your code will use a data provider to extract data?  Let's say I leave ou the provider name in my connection string in my web.config file like the following example?  Will this work?
<connectionStrings>
        <clear/>
        <add name="Tracker2ConnectionString" providerName="System.Data.Oledb" connectionString="Data Source=BRSMITH-PC; Initial Catalog=Tracker2; Integrated Security=True" />
    </connectionStrings>
