We have a series of VB.net code that we can't find the databases was designed for.  We would like to know what area to look at in the code where databases and fields are being coded.

Note: we have someone searching other computers for the database.  With the data identify we can relate code and db (also note, and forgot to put in the question, the database are in MS SQL2005)

Don't know... how can we identify these area of connection string?

Also, these connection strings, are they called everytime the table are being read or written?

Hi rayluvs;

See if you can do a global search for one of these types in the code SqlDataAdapter, SqlConnection, SelectCommand, or SqlCommand.

To your question, "Also, these connection strings, are they called everytime the table are being read or written?", no they are used when the program needs to connect to the database before any data can be passed back and forth.

That depends on the technology that is being used. You can look for SqlDataAdapter.Update command to see if you find it.
