mssql db con via web.config

Hi,

I have the following in a web.config file for a db connection:

<connectionStrings>
        <add
          name="AppUsrConnectionString"
          connectionString="Data Source=CSQL03\BAPPS;Initial
          Catalog=AALSMGNT;Persist Security Info=True;User
          ID=AER;Password=Abc765456"
          providerName="System.Data.SqlClient"
        />
    </connectionStrings>

Based on the above settings i am trying to connect to a mssql 2012 database using the following classic asp vb coding:

Dim strConnection
            strConnection = ConfigurationManager.ConnectionStrings("AppUsrConnectionString").ToString()

to execute below query:

Dim strQueryUserCheckCount
strQueryUserCheckCount = "SELECT count(*) FROM AppUsrD where AppUsr_DWI = '" & Session("UserName") & "'"
'--- build connections for query executions
            Dim objStringDataConnectionStrQueryUserCheckCount
            objStringDataConnectionStrQueryUserCheckCount = New SqlConnection(strConnection)
            objStringDataConnectionStrQueryUserCheckCount.Open()

Dim objConnStrQueryUserCheckCount, userRecordCountCheck
            objConnStrQueryUserCheckCount = New SqlCommand(strQueryUserCheckCount, objStringDataConnectionStrQueryUserCheckCount)
            userRecordCountCheck = objConnStrQueryUserCheckCount.ExecuteScalar()

However i am not able to connect to database. please some help in making it work and in creating a db connection test page.

Thanks in advance

You should only need something like

strConnection = "Provider=SQLOLEDB; Server=localhost; database=db_name; uid=user_name; Password=pass_word;"

also, this looks to be .NET, should probably be moved to that area for better responses

No, changing the connection still doesn't work.

Can you help me with a connection test page maybe?

it looks like you're using classic asp code, which is entirely different from asp .net. when you do

Dim strQueryUserCheckCount

that's syntax for classic asp, if it was .NET you would have to declare the data type, like this:

Dim strQueryUserCheckCount as String

what's the extension on the web page you're using, fileName.ASP or fileName.ASPX?
