issue is as such: I have a Intranet web app that connects to sql 2000 via asp. my ado connection string is as such: adoCon.OPen "Provider=SQLOLEDB; Data Source=SQLDEV\SQLDEV; Initial Catalog=JAILRR; Integrated Security=SSPI" The sql database has only one user id(logon) associated with it: jaildivuser. It is a sql account and not a windows domain account. My objective was that the windows users logged in and using the app would be passed to sql using this string. When the app runs you can see in the sql logs a successfull login for jaildivuser. Strange problem is that no where in the asp code is the user id jaildivuser referenced. any ideas of how to straighten this out? thanks > > * * * This message, including any attachments, is intended solely for the use of the named recipient(s) and may contain confidential and/or priveleged information.
