I have a database that is on a PC. This PC is a server and is the host for the SQL Express instance. I can connect to the SQL Server if I use MS Access and create and ODBC connection manually. I cannot connect to is using VBA coding. I am pretty sure the coding is correct as it is working for two other databases on other networks right now. What I am not sure of is the Security features of SQL Server. I think I covered them all. The user is included in the instance and has been assigned as SYSADMIN. I Configure SQL Server to accept TCP/IP connections. I am at a loss.
