From solution properties, select 1. References then 2. Add and finally 3. Browse. Browse to the directory and 4. Select the file. (see image below)
refsYou may need to add an imports statement in your class where you use the methods / types in the added references, however, Intellisense should help you there.

Hi CodeCruiser. An article about building a SQL connection string builder included it but your answer to doing this was far more straightforward. Thanks
