I have several programs that I've been using for years in VB6 that connect to a SQL 2000 server, I'm looking to upgrade the Db server to SQL 2008 and am having trouble connectiong to the 2008 server. Do I have to make changes to the connection string for SQL 2005/2008?
Here is my connection that im using now to connect to the SQL 2000 server:
Dim DBNAME As String, SERVERNAME As String
DBNAME = "database" 'SUBSTITUTE YOUR DATABASE NAME HERE
SERVERNAME = "server\instance" 'SUBSTITUTE YOUR SQL SERVER NAME HERE
cn.ConnectionString = "Provider=SQLOLEDB.1;Integ
rated Security=SSPI;Persist Security Info=False;Initial Catalog=" & DBNAME & ";Data Source=" & SERVERNAME
cn.Open '<---Fails when opening connection with the attached error message
rs.ActiveConnection = cn
rs.CursorLocation = adUseClient
rs.CursorType = adOpenStatic
rs.LockType = adLockBatchOptimistic
rs.Source = "SELECT * FROM table ORDER BY lastname, firstname"
It fails at the cn.open with "SQL server does not exist or access denied"
Im using integrated security and the login i'm using has dbo on the database.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
