In your app.config
<configuration>
<appSettings>
      <add key="connectionString" value="server=servername;database=dbname;integrated security=sspi" />
 
</appSettings>
</configuration>


To reference that in your code:

Dim oConn As New SqlConnection(ConfigurationSettings.AppSettings("connectionString"))
