Do I need to change my ADO connection string if I upgrade from SQL 2000 to SQL 2005?

Hello,
I am trying to upgrade my server from SQL 2000 to SQL 2003 and am having some trouble with an application that talks to the SQL server from Access 2003 using VBA code.  The code works fine on the 2000 server, but I am getting login errors when I use it on the 2005 server.  Is it as simple as changing a connection string?  I have tried a few, but have not had any success.  Here is a snippet of the code - I hope someone can help!  I get the error at the conn.Open command.  Thank you!
Set conn = New ADODB.Connection

conn.ConnectionString = "Provider=sqloledb;Data Source=datacruncher;" &_ 

                                      "Initial Catalog=mmcsdb;Integrated Security=SSPI;"

 conn.Open

 strInitial = Form_frmInitialize.cboOrdProd.Column(1)

 strsql = "if exists (select * from sysobjects " & _

        "where name = 'vwomit" & strInitial & "') " & _

        "drop view vwomit" & strInitial & ""

conn.Execute strsql

Open in new window

try using
conn.ConnectionString = "Provider=sqloledb;Data Source=datacruncher,1433;" &_
                                      "Initial Catalog=mmcsdb;Integrated Security=SSPI;"
 conn.Open

replace 1433 with the Port of SQL server. if you are still getting the error post the error message or screen shot

Thanks, but I got the same error.  We use the default port of 1433, so I was not optimistic.  I know it is connecting to the server because I also see a login error in the SQL Server logs.  Here is a screen shot

try using a server login(using username and password) and check if you are able to connect. it looks like the login is failing

I would prefer not to setup logins.  Is there a security setting that is turned off by default in SQL 2000 but turned on by default in SQL 2005?

you need to grant access rights to the database. if possible from the client machine try to connect to the SQL server using other application or SQL Server Management studio. check if you can access the database mmcsdb.
if the other application is not working then the login that you used to log in to the machine does not have rights to the server
