Hi experts,

we have a classic ASP page where we want to connect to a sql 2008 R2 server.
The connection string so far to connect to sql 2005 was:
conn.Open "Provider=SQLOLEDB; Data Source = (local); Initial Catalog = database; User Id = userABC; Password=abcd"
this worked perfectly. But now with sql2008 it doesn't work any more and throws the following error:

Microsoft OLE DB Provider for SQL Server error '80040e4d'

Login failed for user 'userABC'.

/web/db.asp, line 11

Please help
Thanks a lot
Best regards
arthrex
