Hi

I have recently set up a asp website on a hosting server. All is working well until I try to access the mssql server database. I have set up an odbc connection on the host plesk page however when I try to sccess the database from dreamweaver I keep getting error server does not exist or you dont have access.
The steps I take are
1  Add new database , I choose Data Source Name(DNS)
2  Click define
3  Click system DNS tab,
4  Click Add tab  ...select sql server. enter name  =  WEB NAME , enter description = DESCRIPTION. , enter server  =   win\mssqlserver2008
5 Click sql server authentication  login id  and password  ( SAME AS USED WHEN SETTING UP THE ODBC CONNECTION ON THE HOST PLESK PAGE)
6 Enter id and password click next
7 error message   Connection failed , server does not exist or connection denied...;.
