SqlDataSource and SelectParameters problem

Hi,

I try to change an ASP.NET problem from a MDB DataSource to a SQL Server.
Now I've a DataSource with SelectedParameters and don't know how to change it to SQL Server Syntax.

This works fine with a MDB:
<asp:SqlDataSource runat="server" ID="sds2" SelectCommand="SELECT * FROM [Orders] WHERE CustomerID = ?"
 ConnectionString="Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=|DataDirectory|Northwind.mdb;" ProviderName="System.Data.OleDb">
    <SelectParameters>
        <asp:Parameter Name="CustomerID" Type="String" />
    </SelectParameters>
</asp:SqlDataSource>

I tried this, but only get an error message "near ?":
<asp:SqlDataSource runat="server" ID="sds2" SelectCommand="SELECT * FROM [Orders] WHERE CustomerID = ?"
 ConnectionString="server=localhost;database=Northwind;uid=sa;password=lifesuxx;">
    <SelectParameters>
        <asp:Parameter Name="CustomerID" Type="String" />
    </SelectParameters>
</asp:SqlDataSource>

The connection and the query is fine, just the replacement of the parameter seems to be wrong.
What is the right syntax for?

Thanks,

Andre

Try changing ? to @CustomerID and changing Name="CustomerID" to Name="@CustomerID"

Try it like this:
ConnectionString="server=localhost;database=Northwind;User ID=sa;Password=lifesuxx;Trusted_Connection=False;"
