dbconnstring = "provider=sqloledb;Server=XXXXXXX.US.XCC.com;Database=Xdb_QA;Uid=xcx111;Pwd=sqlxxxx$;"

In a connection string like this is there a way to hide the uername and password from the user in case they get into the code ?

Agreed with coachman99, or implement integrated security with your database server and setup users individually.
