I have to use connection string to connect to SQL Server in my code, but the connectionstrings seem to have problems..

below are my login credentials for SSMS.

Windows Authentication
username :  IT\myusername
password : blank

SQL Server Authentication
username : sa
password : 123

string sourceconnstringextract = "Data Source=IT01\\SQLEXPRESS;Integrated Security=True;Connect Timeout=30;User Instance=True;initial catalog=RetailDB; user id=sa; password=123";
 
the error = 'Cannot open database "RetailDB" requested by the login. The login failed.
Login failed for user 'IT01\myusername'.'
 
then i tried this..
 
string sourceconnstringextract = "Data Source=IT01\\SQLEXPRESS;AttachDbFilename="C:\\Program Files\\Microsoft SQL Server\\MSSQL.1\\MSSQL\\Data\\RetailDB.mdf;Integrated Security=True;Connect Timeout=30;User Instance=True";
 
got this error = 
Keyword not supported: 'c:\program files\microsoft sql server\mssql.1\mssql\data\retaildb.mdf;integrated security'.

            ConnectionString :=
                'Provider=SQLOLEDB.1;' +
                'Persist Security Info=False;' +
                'User ID=' + SQL_login + ';' +
                'Password=' + SQL_pass + ';' +
                'Initial Catalog=' + SQL_Database_Name + ';' +
                'Data Source=' + SQL_Server_Name + ';' +
                'General Timeout=10;Command Timeout=10;Login Timeout=10';

rather than just connection string, could you please provide us with full code which is calling connection string? It may help use more to troubleshoot.

string sourceconnstringextract = "Persist Security Info=False;User ID=sa; Password=123; Initial Catalog=RetailDB; Data Source=IT01\\SQLEXPRESS;";

hey again ritesh,
i filtered out some connection properties like above for testing , it does not have any error at all,
and when i ran storeprocedure (which also fine), everything seems fine. But no record updated in table

                 using (SqlConnection sqlsourceconnExtract = new SqlConnection(sourceconnstringextract))
                  {
                      try
                      {
                          SqlCommand cmdSQL = new SqlCommand("UpdateRetailDBSO2", sqlsourceconnExtract);
                          cmdSQL.CommandType = CommandType.StoredProcedure;
                          cmdSQL.Connection = sqlsourceconnExtract;

                          SqlParameter parameterdesc = new SqlParameter("@sale_id", SqlDbType.NVarChar, 50);
                          parameterdesc.Direction = ParameterDirection.Input;
                          cmdSQL.Parameters.AddWithValue("@sale_id", 1);

                          try
                          {
                              sqlsourceconnExtract.Open();
                              cmdSQL.ExecuteNonQuery();
                          }
                          catch (Exception ex)
                          {
                              lstViewLog.Items.Add(ex.Message.ToString());
                          }


                      }
                      catch (Exception ex)
                      {
                          lstViewLog.Items.Add(ex.Message.ToString());
                      }
                      finally
                      {
                           lstViewLog.Items.Add("completed");
                          sqlsourceconnExtract.Close();
                      }

                  }

This is correct:
sourceconnstringextract = "Data Source=IT01\\SQLEXPRESS;Integrated Security=True;Connect Timeout=30;User Instance=True;initial catalog=RetailDB; user id=sa; password=123";

Go to SSMS > SQL Server Properties  > Security.
SQL Server and Windows Authentication mode must by enabled.

i modified the connection string abit and it worked
the first column was nearly matched,

string sourceconnstringextract = "Persist Security Info=" + checkboxsourceextract + ";User ID= " + txtSourceUsername.Text + "; Password= " + txtSourcePassword.Text + "; Initial Catalog=RetailDB; Data Source=" + txtSourceDS.Text + ";";

                            using (SqlConnection sqlsourceconnextract = new SqlConnection(sourceconnstringextract))
                            {

                                try
                                {
                                    SqlCommand sqlcmd_insert_into_oneuSO = sqlsourceconnextract.CreateCommand();
                                    sqlcmd_insert_into_oneuSO.CommandText = "USE " + txtSourceDatabase.Text + "; INSERT INTO dbo.ONEU_Sales_Order (sale_id, sale_order_no, sale_order_invoice, sale_datetime, sale_status, sub_total, discount_percent, discount_amount, tax_percent, tax_amount, service_charge_percent, service_charge_amount, grand_total, line_type, chg_type, whse_code, upload_status) " +
                                " VALUES ('" + generated_saleid + "', '" + dsdual.Tables[0].Rows[i]["sosoorderno"].ToString() + "', '" + dsdual.Tables[0].Rows[i]["so_invoice_no"].ToString() + "', '" + Convert.ToDateTime(dsdual.Tables[0].Rows[i]["sol_date_stamp"])
                                + "', '" + dsdual.Tables[0].Rows[i]["so_order_status"] + "', " + calculated_sub_total + ", " + dsdual.Tables[0].Rows[i]["sol_line_amount"].ToString() + ", 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, 0, '', '', '', 0)";

                                    //sqlcmd_insert_into_1uSO.CommandText = "UPDATE ONEU_Sales_Order SET sale_id='" + generated_saleid + "',sale_order_no='" + dsgetselectedrow.Tables[0].Rows[j]["so_order_no"].ToString() + "', sale_order_invoice='" + dsgetselectedrow.Tables[0].Rows[j]["so_invoice_no"].ToString() +
                                    //    "', sale_date=" + Convert.ToDateTime(dsgetselectedrow.Tables[0].Rows[0]["sol_date_stamp"]) + ", sale_status='" + dsgetselectedrow.Tables[0].Rows[j]["so_order_status"] + "', sub_total='" + calculated_sub_total + "', discount_amount='" + dsgetselectedrow.Tables[0].Rows[j]["sol_line_amount"].ToString() + "'";

                                    sqlsourceconnextract.Open();
