Unable to connect to SQL database using MS Access. Getting data link error.


We have a Windows 2008 SBS which is hosting a SQL database. The database itself is running and can be accessed using a web browser from any of the networked workstations. For order processing our contracted database administrator created an MS Access file that can connect to the database so that information can be filtered for client orders. This file used to connect without issue and is no longer working.

I have attached a screen capture of the error that is received while attempting to connect to the database using MS Access. No passwords have change nor has anything on the server.

Any advice regarding this issue will be most appreciated.
