Yes.  The connection string specified should work:

Driver={SQL Server};Server=Socrates;Database=AcmeMktg; UID=wiley;PWD=roadrunner

You want to try something like this:

Dim Connection As New SqlClient.SqlConnectionStringBuilder
Connection.DataSource = "Database name"
Connection.UserID = "user name"
Connection.Password = "password"
Dim objSQlConnection = New SqlClient.SqlConnection(Connection.ConnectionString)

Open in new window


Make sure that at the head of the file you include:
Imports System.Data.SqlClient

Open in new window


More information concerning the SqlConnectionStringBuilder class:

OK..

Reading more in to it I have to decide what coding method I'm going to learn...

Looking there are two main ones. Razor and MVC.

What would be peoples professional opinions as I read Razor keeps out the way more and is easier to learn which it appealing.

Thanks
