From your visual studio, create a web form (let's say Test1.aspx).
Then open the code-behind file (Test1.aspx.cs), and find the Page_Load method.
Then fill it in with this code.

Btw, don't forget to include the following namespaces, if they are not yet included:
using System.Configurations;
using System.Data;
using System.Data.SqlClient;

void Page_Load(object source, EventArgs e)
{
  string connectionString = ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings["ConnectionString"].ConnectionString;
  SqlConnection connection = new SqlConnection(connectionString);
  connection.Open();
 
  string cmdText = "select * from userTable";
  SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand(cmdText, connection);
  SqlDataReader reader = cmd.ExecuteReader();
 
  while (reader.Read())
  {
    Response.Write(reader["column_name"].ToString() + "<br>");
  }
 
  reader.Close();
  connection.Close();
}

something like:

 string conn_str = ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings["ConnectionString"].ConnectionString;
            var myConnection = new SqlConnection(conn_str);
            myConnection.Open();
            var mySqlDataAdapter = new SqlDataAdapter("Select Top 10 * from Transactions", myConnection);

            var myDataSet = new DataSet();
            mySqlDataAdapter.Fill(myDataSet, "Transactions");
            foreach(DataRow myDataRow in myDataSet.Tables["Transactions"].Rows)
            {
                Response.Write(myDataRow["TransactionID"].ToString());
            }

also try to change your connectionstring to
  <add name="ConnectionString" connectionString="Server=server; Database=db; uid=user; pwd=pass;" />

As sree_ven mentioned, take note that you change 'key' to 'name' in the web.config.
<add name="ConnectionString" connectionString="Server=server; Database=db; uid=user; pwd=pass;" />

That works, thank you guys
How would I take the data from the query and display each record in my formated table such as table that I design in the .aspx file. I have done that with php, but not with .net.  links to good websites,  tutorials ..etc would be good. thanks again
