Hi Guys,<BR>I am just moving from standard asp to .net. In asp I used dsn-less connections and I am having a lot of trouble connecting to my databases using .net<BR>I do not host the sites I upload them onto an host server.<BR>For development I originally used IIS but now I am trying to use SQL Server. I keep getting an error message of either "no server found/access denied" or "Not a trusted connection" when I try to connect using .aspx My questions are:<BR>1. Should I uninstall IIS and just use SQL server as this may be confusing things<BR>2. Can dsn-less connections be used with .net datagrids and sqldataadapters etc. <BR><BR>If somebody has some example connection code I would really appreciate it.<BR><BR>Many thanks in advance.<BR><BR>Steve Wilson.
