i assume your database is on your server computer..
just use connection like following for your app.

Data Source=192.168.0.100\yourinstancename;Initial Catalog=myDataBase;User ID=myUsername;Password=myPassword;

your video is set to private

Hi, my video is not private anymore..

Thanks

Data Source=192.168.0.100\yourinstancename;Initial Catalog=myDataBase;User ID=myUsername;Password=myPassword;

In above Code changes "yourinstancename" with Your Sql Instance Ex: SqlExpress (which is defaul instance)

"myDataBase" with your Database name
"myUsername" with your user id for sql server
"myPassword" with your password for sql server
and "192.168.0.100" with your server id or server-name

Hi, here is my code:

Data Source=STARMAX-PC;Initial Catalog=myDataBase;User ID=User1;Password=password;

and i came up with error.

:(

ty

Dim conn As New SqlConnection("Data Source=server-PC\instance;Initial Catalog=Northwind;Persist Security Info=True;User ID=id;Password=pass")

connection string have to be like this.. enclosed in parenthesis

Try the following connection string, backslashes added and your server (pc) name -

Data Source=\\192.168.0.100\MyServerNameHere\yourinstancename;Initial Catalog=myDataBase;User ID=myUsername;Password=myPassword;

I created new application,
what i did is:

1. I open SSMS and create Database
2. I open Microsoft Visual Studio 2010 create new Project "windows Form applications"
and this is my code:

Imports System.Data.SqlClient

Public Class Form1
    Private cs As New SqlConnection("Data Source=STARMAX-PC;Initial Catalog=ADO_PRACTICE;Integrated Security=True")
    Private da As New SqlDataAdapter("SELECT * FROM tblContacts", cs)
    Private ds As New DataSet
    Private cmb As New SqlCommandBuilder(da)

    Private Sub Form1_Load(ByVal sender As Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles Me.Load

        Try
            Dim myConnection As SqlConnection = New SqlConnection()
            myConnection.ConnectionString = "Data Source=STARMAX-PC;Initial Catalog=ADO_PRACTICE;Integrated Security=True"

            da.Fill(ds, "tblContacts")
            dg.DataSource = ds.Tables("tblContacts")

        Catch ex As Exception

        End Try

    End Sub

    Private Sub btnUpdate_Click(ByVal sender As System.Object, ByVal e As System.EventArgs) Handles btnUpdate.Click

        Dim x As Integer

        da.UpdateCommand = cmb.GetUpdateCommand

        x = da.Update(ds.Tables("tblContacts"))

        MsgBox(x & " Record(s) updated! ")

    End Sub
End Class

after that I saved and i run my application , and there's no error..
here is the image please view:

3. I share the folder of my Application so I can access to the other pc.
4. I run the .exe in the other pc and there's no error showing up, but the Form show just a blank, please view image.

is my code correct?

Thanks guys
