What Adapter are you using?


If you are using SQLClient Then try something like this:

    Dim con As New SQLConnection("Data Source=MYSERVEr;Initial Catalog=MYDATABASE;Integrated Security=True")
Catch ex As Exception
End Try

im using SQLclient, but its still same, nothing happen....code that you give like i said at my question, see my connection string, its same, so i think that maybe have some setting that need to do...

Are you getting an error?

Or are you confusing connection with command?

A command would be:

Dim con As New SQLConnection("Data Source=MYSERVER;Initial Catalog=MYDATABASE;Integrated Security=True"
Dim com As New SqlCommand("SELECT * FROM table",con)   
Dim da As New SQLDataAdapter(com)
Dim ds As New DataSet

yes! its same you can see my connection string on my question...its cant run from another computer.

What error are you getting on the other computer?

If you are using a DNS name on a server that is not on the same network as the other computer - then you will have to use the ip of the server.
