All of a sudden I cannot add/update queries in my xsd dataset.  I get...

Error
Configure TableAdapter qquote failed.
Unable to find connection 'MyConnectionString' for object 'Web.config'. The connection string could not be found in application settings, or the data provider associated with the connection string could not be loaded.

The string is in my web.config.  Can you help?

Since you indicated all of a sudden, is it safe to say this was recently working?  If so, what installations have recently occurred?  Is it possible that the driver for you SQL platform was accidentally removed or altered?

You can try to answer those questions for yourself and might lead you to the underlying issue.

Also please post the connection string (ensuring to obfuscate any private details).

You were right.  For some reason the providerName was wrong.  I recently upgraded it.
