Connecting to SQL Server database in Codecharge studio

Hi,

I'm trying to connect to a database in Microsoft SQl server 2012 in Windows_NT mode.

The database name is "Checkweigher" and is setup in mixed mode.

I''ve setup the Codecharge studio connection.

Database: SQL Server
Server Name: ***\MES
Selected use Windows NT Integrated security
And selected the database.

I tested the connection and it says that the connection was successful

 But when I click on the "Live Page: tab, I get the following error:

Unable to establish connection to database.
Error information:
Microsoft OLE DB Provider for SQL Server (0x80004005)
Cannot open database "CheckWeighers" requested by the login. The login failed.
Other possible cause of this problem:
The database cannot be opened, most likely due to incorrect connection settings or insufficient security set on your database folder or file.
For more details please refer to http://support.microsoft.com/default.aspx?scid=kb;en-us;Q306518

I just can't seem to find a solution. Please help.

Thanks.

usually when you get this message, it's due to the connecting user not having enough rights to the database. Are you sure you're using the same user as when you initially tested the connection?

it may also be trying to connect via your IIS user (I've run into setups like these), try giving your IIS user full rights (just as a test) and see if that helps.

Yes, The_Big_Daddy is correct.

Open SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS),
Right-click on the database in question
Click on Properties
Click on Permissions
Then if you don't see the user there, click Add
Click Browse
Look for the login name you created
Finally, check Execute.

If the login isn't already created, then create it first.

No split in the points? I provided the overall theory in the answer and SS provided the fix. Not sure how you came about your awarding of points on this one....
