getting an aspx page to access a sqlserver data base

am running this code but is throwing up an error

An error has occurred while establishing a connection to the server.  When connecting to SQL Server 2005, this failure may be caused by the fact that under the default settings SQL Server does not allow remote connections. (provider: Named Pipes Provider, error: 40 - Could not open a connection to SQL Server)

have been through to
Enable remote connections for SQL Server 2005 Express or SQL Server 2005 Developer Edition
and
Enable the SQL Server Browser service
but still gives me an error

 Response.Write("sql update")
                Dim MyConnection As SqlConnection
            MyConnection = New SqlConnection("server=(PER-148\SQLEXPRESS)\;database=TechKnowBaseSQL;Trusted_Connection=yes")
                Dim DS As DataSet
                Dim MyCommand As SqlDataAdapter
               
            MySql = "SELECT SearchName FROM tblsearchname"
               
            MyCommand = New SqlDataAdapter(MySql & "ORDER BY SearchName", MyConnection)
            Try
                DS = New DataSet()
                MyCommand.Fill(DS, "tblsearchname")
                MyDataGrid.DataSource = DS.Tables("tblsearchname").DefaultView
                MyDataGrid.DataBind()
            Catch
                ErrBox.Text = "Err 1005 xxxxxzzz Could not Update Data Grid Check if SQL DataBase Operational"
            End Try
            MyConnection.Close()

>login in through ssms using admin admin1 as un and pw and it worked fine use a diff pw and it fials so thats workign ok

That all checks out.  Try this connection string:

MyConnection = New SqlConnection()
MyConnection.ConnectionString= "" _
&  "Data Source=PER-148\SQLEXPRESS" _
& ";Initial Catalog=TechKnowBaseSQL" _
& ";User Id=admin" _
& ";password=admin1"

Lots of problems can cause that error.  My guess is that the IIS account that is serving the ASP page does not have permission to login to SQL Server or the login does not have permissions to access the TechKnowBaseSQL database.

Often in this scenario, you want to go like this.   Enable SQL authentication.  Create an SQL Server login dedicated to your ASP site and give it the necessary permissions for the TechKnowBaseSQL database.  Make sure you can login from SSMS using that login. Change your connection string from Trusted connection to one with UID and PWD.

Because you can see the Object Explorer tells me that your login is connecting to the server.  The next step is to diagnose why you are having difficulty accessing the database.

1.  On the above screen shot, click the User Mapping page (on the right side) to see what database are mapped

2.  Also, under databases on the left side, expand security, then users to see what users are defined for the TechKnowBaseSQL database.
