MS Access (Jet)
"PROVIDER=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;DATA Source=[Path to database];User ID=Admin;Password=dbpassword"
- You can use Server.Mappath function to identify Path to your database. For example, if the DB file is in the /database directory under your web root, you would use server.mappath("/database/test.mdb"). As an alternative, you can also insert the full path. You can find the path in the Account Information section in your control panel.
- You can omit the User Id & Password attributes, if your Access Database is not password protected.
"Provider=sqloledb;Data Source=[SQLServerName];Initial Catalog=[DatabaseName];User Id=[SQL Login];Password=[SQL Password]"
