InfoPath error when connecting to SQL server 2003 - not associated with a trusted SQL server connection

Dear All,

I have a SharePoint 2007 enterprise edition x64 environment that I am using for WorkFlows. The SharePoint databases are held on a SQL Server 2005. There is also another database on the same sever that holds information such as departments, active users and job titles. I'm trying to get the infoPath forms to retrieve these details and populate them into a drop down box. I want to use stored credentials in the SQL connection from Infopath to the database but I keep getting an error "Login failed for user ??????. The user is not associated with a trusted SQL server connection", see attached. Can anyone tell me how to setup a trusted connection between the infoPath forms on the SharePoint Server and a SQL Server ?

I cannot see what option you selected for sql authentication, because of the error prompt, but it seems that you have filled the password textbox, this meaning that you selected 'Use the following user name and Password'

for that option you should provide a SQL login and not a domain user

Dear All,

I have provided an SQL login with the following permissions to the database:

db_accessadmin
db_datareader
db_owner
db_securityadmin

and I'm still getting the error message.

Just as I thought; delete everything before \, including it; when you provide a SQL login as authentication it's not needed to specify the server name

Hi Andrei,

I have already tried without the domain and \ but I'm still getting the same error message.

then you mistyped the password or something like this; reset the password of the SQL login and start over

Is the instance of the SQL named?
Do you have SQL Studio Management istalled on you workstation? Can you connect to the SQL with SSMS using that SQL login?

I can't connect to SQL with that login using SSMS but they are there under security -> logins. How come ?

so, that is not an SQL login, but an domain account (it's login has the same name - but this si not important)

please define a new login, this time should be a SQL account
