Subject: Re: Web Site for OLEDB connection strings
Just to add to the URL that others have posted….
The method I use to get a connectionstring is to create an empty file with the file extension, “UDL”
Then I open the file, which launches the “Data Link properties” dialog I select the Provider I want to use, and al the criteria (servername, etc), then hit OK
Then I open the file in Notepad to find one conenction string..ready for copying and pasting into the source editor/config file/whatever
