Can you explain to me one more time. Do you need to connect to MS SQL 2005 database or Access file?


hi there..

btw, i have problem connecting my database(sql server 2005) with my interface(vb.net).
i've tried to connect my interface(vb.net) with my database(sql server 2005), however dis error msg came out:
"An error has occured while establishing a connection to the server. When connecting to sql server 2005, this failure maybe caused by the fact that under the default settings SQL server does not allow remote connection.(error 26:Error locating server/Instance specified).

Or can u help me by giving step to step instruction on how to connect to sql server from vb.net. i'm sooooooo depresssed! =(
