·   SQL Server

  •  ODBC

    •  Standard Security:

"Driver={SQL Server};Server=Aron1;Database=pubs;Uid=sa;Pwd=asdasd;"


    •  Trusted connection:

"Driver={SQL Server};Server=Aron1;Database=pubs;Trusted_Connection=yes;"


    •  Prompt for username and password:

oConn.Properties("Prompt") = adPromptAlways
oConn.Open "Driver={SQL Server};Server=Aron1;DataBase=pubs;"


  •  OLE DB, OleDbConnection (.NET)

    •  Standard Security:

"Provider=sqloledb;Data Source=Aron1;Initial Catalog=pubs;User Id=sa;Password=asdasd;"


    •  Trusted Connection:

"Provider=sqloledb;Data Source=Aron1;Initial Catalog=pubs;Integrated Security=SSPI;"

(use serverName/instanceName as Data Source to use an specifik SQLServer instance, only SQLServer2000)

    •  Prompt for username and password:

oConn.Provider = "sqloledb"
oConn.Properties("Prompt") = adPromptAlways
oConn.Open "Data Source=Aron1;Initial Catalog=pubs;"


    •  Connect via an IP address:

"Provider=sqloledb;Data Source=,1433;Network Library=DBMSSOCN;Initial Catalog=pubs;User ID=sa;Password=asdasd;"

(DBMSSOCN=TCP/IP instead of Named Pipes, at the end of the Data Source is the port to use (1433 is the default))

  •  SqlConnection (.NET)

"Data Source=Aron1;Initial Catalog=pubs;User Id=sa;Password=asdasd;"
   - or -
"Server=Aron1;Database=pubs;User ID=sa;Password=asdasd;Trusted_Connection=False"
   (booth connection strings produces the same result)


"Data Source=Aron1;Initial Catalog=pubs;Integrated Security=SSPI;"
   - or -
   (booth connection strings produces the same result)

(use serverName/instanceName as Data Source to use an specifik SQLServer instance, only SQLServer2000)

"Data Source=,1433;Network Library=DBMSSOCN;Initial Catalog=pubs;User ID=sa;Password=asdasd;"

(DBMSSOCN=TCP/IP instead of Named Pipes, at the end of the Data Source is the port to use (1433 is the default))

using System.Data.SqlClient;
SqlConnection oSQLConn = new SqlConnection();
oSQLConn.ConnectionString="my connectionstring";


Imports System.Data.SqlClient
Dim oSQLConn As SqlConnection = New SqlConnection()
oSQLConn.ConnectionString="my connectionstring"

Network library


Win32 Named Pipes


Win32 Winsock TCP/IP




Win32 Banyan Vines


Win32 Multi-Protocol (Windows RPC)




Application Name


The name of the application, or '.Net SqlClient Data Provider' if no application name is provided.

extended properties
Initial File Name


The name of the primary file, including the full path name, of an attachable database. The database name must be specified with the keyword 'database'.

Connect Timeout
Connection Timeout


The length of time (in seconds) to wait for a connection to the server before terminating the attempt and generating an error.

Connection Lifetime


When a connection is returned to the pool, its creation time is compared with the current time, and the connection is destroyed if that time span (in seconds) exceeds the value specified by connection lifetime. Useful in clustered configurations to force load balancing between a running server and a server just brought on-line.

Connection Reset


Determines whether the database connection is reset when being removed from the pool. Setting to 'false' avoids making an additional server round-trip when obtaining a connection, but the programmer must be aware that the connection state is not being reset.

Current Language


The SQL Server Language record name.

Data Source
Network Address


The name or network address of the instance of SQL Server to which to connect.



When true, the pooler automatically enlists the connection in the creation thread's current transaction context.

Initial Catalog


The name of the database.

Integrated Security


Whether the connection is to be a secure connection or not. Recognized values are 'true', 'false', and 'sspi', which is equivalent to 'true'.

Max Pool Size


The maximum number of connections allowed in the pool.

Min Pool Size


The minimum number of connections allowed in the pool.

Network Library


The network library used to establish a connection to an instance of SQL Server. Supported values include dbnmpntw (Named Pipes), dbmsrpcn (Multiprotocol), dbmsadsn (Apple Talk), dbmsgnet (VIA), dbmsipcn (Shared Memory) and dbmsspxn (IPX/SPX), and dbmssocn (TCP/IP).
The corresponding network DLL must be installed on the system to which you connect. If you do not specify a network and you use a local server (for example, "." or "(local)"), shared memory is used.

Packet Size


Size in bytes of the network packets used to communicate with an instance of SQL Server.



The password for the SQL Server account logging on.

Persist Security Info


When set to 'false', security-sensitive information, such as the password, is not returned as part of the connection if the connection is open or has ever been in an open state. Resetting the connection string resets all connection string values including the password.



When true, the SQLConnection object is drawn from the appropriate pool, or if necessary, is created and added to the appropriate pool.

User ID


The SQL Server login account.

Workstation ID

the local computer name

The name of the workstation connecting to SQL Server.

Note! The two double quota following the DSN parameter at the end are escaped quotas (VB syntax), you may have to change this to your language specific escape syntax. The empty DSN parameter is indeed critical as not including it will result in error 7778.

"Provider=Sybase ASE OLE DB Provider; Data source=myASE"

Note that you must create a Data Source .IDS file using the Sybase Data Administrator. These .IDS files resemble ODBC DSNs.

"Provider=Sybase.ASEOLEDBProvider;Srvr=myASEserver,5000;Catalog=myDBname;User Id=username;Password=password"
   - some reports on problem using the above one, try the following as an alternative -

"Provider=Sybase.ASEOLEDBProvider;Server Name=myASEserver,5000;Initial Catalog=myDBname;User Id=username;Password=password"

This one works only from Open Client 12.5 where the server port number feature works,llowing fully qualified connection strings to be used without definingny .IDS Data Source files.

"Data Source='myASEserver';Port=5000;Database='myDBname';UID='username';PWD='password';"


using Sybase.Data.AseClient;
AseConnection oCon = new AseConnection();
