How do I access SQL Server installation from another machine in my home network?
I have a SQL Server 2005 installed on my LENOVO machine. On the LENOVO, within Excel, I can write queries and pull data into Excel from SQL Server.
What I would like to be able to do is perform the same functionality within Excel, but from another machine (PAVILION) on my home network. This PAVILION machine can access my wireless network already, and can see a shared folder I set up on the LENOVO.
However, when I try the following in Excel (DATA -> GET EXTERNAL DATA -> FROM OTHER SOURCES -> SQL SERVER -> FROM SQL SERVER) and enter in the Server Name and User Name and Password I get an error message saying access is denied.
The above test in Excel I mentioned that caused an error, that was on the PAVILION machine. When I try the exact same thing from the LENOVO machine it works fine.
