Hi. In my VB.net Excel Add-in I get the error ConfigurationManager is not declared
I tried using Imports.System.Configuration.ConfigurationManager but that didn't help

         Dim sSQL As String = "Select * From Goals"
            Dim cs As String = ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings("task_conn").ConnectionString

just add Imports System.Configuration

and i your code reference the connectionString property by:

        Dim constring As ConnectionStringSettingsCollection = ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings

You can add a reference to System.Configuration, that does the trick for me all the time.

I still get errors. If I declare  constring as string I get the error  "'ConfigurationManager' is not declared"

>I get the error  "'ConfigurationManager' is not declared"

Are you sure the error says ConfigurationManager is not declared?

It looks like the error is saying ConnectionStringSettingsCollection is not defined.

Adding a reference to System.Configuration did the trick
I thought that using Imports System.Configuration would be enough
but it seems that I needed to do both.
I always assumed that if you use Imports you don't have to add a reference.

Thanks for the help
