Hi Thanks for clicking,

We have this issue. We are trying to connect to SQL server uing the code show.

However it keeps dropping the Pwd="Password" in the ConnectionString when I check it in the debugger

Can anyone help??

It simply returns "MultipleActiveResultSets=True;Data Source=" & strSQLServerName & ";Initial Catalog=trackerSQL;Integrated Security=False;User ID=sa;"

and drops the Pwd bit
Dim strConnectionString As String = "MultipleActiveResultSets=True;Data Source=" & strSQLServerName & ";Initial Catalog=trackerSQL;Integrated Security=False;User ID=sa;Pwd=password"
cnnSQL = New System.Data.SqlClient.SqlConnection()
cnnSQL.ConnectionString = strConnectionString

Open in new window

Wadski:  It depends on the provider.

But yes, for System.Data.SqlClient.SqlConnection it should be:

Data Source=myServerAddress;Initial Catalog=myDataBase;User Id=myUsername;Password=myPassword;

Wadski was probably answering because they looked at the connection type you were building.  I wasn't attempting to correct them, rather make the point that it's not ALWAYS "Password=...".  For example, making the connection with the SQL Native Client provider uses "Pwd=....".

Guys thanks for your feedback.
Its drops the password for encruption reasons I believe, so is acting as it should.
 
However, appreciate any feedback in resolving, and for that reason will allocate the points.
Thanks guys.
