: Thanks Bryan.  I'll give that a shot.

What Bryan has given you is an OLEDB Connection string using the SQL Server

However if you are using .NET, you probably want to use the native SQLClient
to connect rather than OLEDB

Go to www.connectionstrings.com, expand SQL Server, expand SQLConnection
(.NET) node.
