I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

if you are using a SQLServer user credentials, the "SQL Server and Windows Authentication mode" Under Server Properties --> Security should be enabled. Ask your SQLServer admin about this.

Otherwise, if your using a windows account, you need to be added as a user to the SQLServer DB.
