Hi,
I could be able to connect to the database and the connection is success when ever I click the Test Database connection but it is not displaying any information from the DB tables.

I am getting this when I try to configure the ASP.NET  configuration.
----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Could not establish a connection to the database.
If you have not yet created the SQL Server database, exit the Web Site Administration tool, use the aspnet_regsql command-line utility to create and configure the database, and then return to this tool to set the provider.

but in fact I created the database connection and put the exact connection string but it is not displaying any information from the tables.

I have attached the web.config file code as well.
-------------------------------------

Thanks

I suppose that your SQL server is 2005 or 2008.

Open Sql Server Configuration Manager -> Sql Server Network Configuration -> enable "Named pipes"

I done that as you advised but still I am getting the same thing. The information from db is not visible.
but I could see the static information in webpage. Further I am not getting any error also.
This is making me  hard to figure out the problem. The name pipe was disabled and I enabled it after u said but it didn't work out.

I have resolved the problem myself. I didn't give enough permission to the SQL server login user.
thats why it didn't display any data from the database.
