I get 'sqlconnection' is ambiguous in the name space 'system.data.sqlclient' What is this confusion? What I am trying is to connect a .mdf (sql server express) database file using vb.net to store and retrieve some date from a table Wot am i missing? I see various examples for this but none working with me? Am i supposed to add some references?

I'm at an absolute loss here, I've read so many different things.I just want to add new records to a database I created using SQL Server 2008 with SQL statements in Visual Basic Express 2008. But I can't even connect/get it to recognise the database I created.The database name is 'database.mdf' and is situated in the MSSQL/DATA folder. So far I've read I need to use this code;
I have an application, I want to connect my database in SOL Server Authentication mode(mixed mode), Hence When I connecting my database through connection string. then what parameter to be passed or what to be checked.
first of all sorry if this is not the right place to post this question. yesterday i bought Microsoft visual studio 2008, so as to develo web application, then i installed it in my pc. after installing it in my pc, i have seen microsoft Sql Server 2005, in my start menu programs. wow that is nice, but now i want to create database and then connect it with visual studio 2008, so how can do that? this is my frist time to use sql server, so where can i create tables and databases? and how can i connect it with visual studio 2008?
Here is the scoop: I am trying to make a user account SQL database work with Visual Basic 2008 Express for login purposes, i.e. usernames & passwords. Plan is to host this server so people can login to use the the application and verify they have a valid account. I would like to host all the account information in SQL due to the possiblity of hundreds of users at any given time. I also need the ability to add data to the database for users registering for the first time. The SQL server will need to be able to access the SQL Server databases remote via WAN.
I have something strange occuring. The following code works 100% when run in VB2008 Express.When compiled and run onthe same system, it generates the above message.The codebasically opens a Access DB and loops thru the db There is a progress bar (also tried a simplelabel) to display progress using AbsolutePosition.
dbInUse.Open("Provider=Microsoft.ACE.OLEDB.12.0; Data Source=C:SCDBv4DataSCDBData.mdb") rsInUse.Open(OpenCommandSQL, dbInUse, ADODB.CursorTypeEnum.adOpenKeyset, ADODB.LockTypeEnum.adLockOptimistic)
I am newbie in Visual studion 2010. May i know how do i setup the connection for a mdb file. Below is my code and i have encountered an error. the error message is "A first chance exception of type '[URL]' occurred in WindowsApplication1.exe".
Dim PageNum AS Integer = 1 Dim ThePageSize As Integer = 30 Dim RowCT As Integer = 0
When I try to run it I get: "System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException: Current Recordset does not support bookmarks. This may be a limitation of the provider or of the selected cursortype." The error page points to "Objrs.AbsolutePage = PageNum"
what I can do to get around it? It would kind of really stink to show 500 records on one page.
We have a VB6 program that uses an ADODB.Connection to establish a database connection and use its execute function to run SQL statements. The connection we have established is to a SQL Server. It has been working fine. Currently, I am trying to change the connection to a MySQL database. I changed the connection string and the connection is ok.
However, when it comes to running the execute function, it returns a runtime error 3246 - connection object cannot be explicitly closed while in a transaction.
I checked the connection.status before calling execute and found that it is open. When I use MySQL's server connections to check the status, I found that there was a connection before and after execute was called.
I encountered this same error whether I used MySQL ODBC 5.1 Driver or MySQL ODBC 3.51 Driver.
I am writing a small VB 2008 application which connects to a SQL Server 2008 database,which is hosted with Fasthosts in the UK. The connection string I am using is;"connectionString="Data Source=xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx;Initial Catalog=xxxxxxxxxx;User ID=xxxxxxxxxxx;Password=xxxxxxxxxxxx"I can connect to the remote data using the "add data source" within Visual Studio and can preview thehosted data without anyssues however when I try to run the application I get an error stating;"The server was not found or was not accessible. Verify that the instance name is correct and that SQL Server is configured to allow remote connections. (provider: Named Pipes Provider, error: 40 - Could not open a connection to SQL Server)"

I want to understand the concept of connecting to a remote PC or server. I'm working on an app that will connect to a remote server. Read a value from a registry key and then display the results in a text box. It will also connect and search for a specific log file on a server. I understand how to read the files. I'm just not sure how to connect to a machine remotely if I have valid credentials. There seems to be sever ways to accomplish this. I want the most efficient way using vb2008.
I'm been learning about connection strina I have been able to succesfully connect to a sql database stored locally on my Pc.The next logical step would be to connect to a database stored on a remote server. My question is does anyone of a sql database ( or any other type of database ) which can be openly accessed by the general public. Does anyone know if a web hosting service would allow me to remotely connect to a sql database ? Could I for instance upload my database onto a web hosting service and try connect to a remote database that way
i am having alot of trouble finding the source code to establish a connection to a remote sql server ( at my university) for vb. All i have is the IP adress and the username and password to the database. I tried coding it with a sqlconnection, sqlreader and a command to execute the statement with no luck.
i am trying to develop a multi user application. this is the first time i am doing it. my database is sql server 2005. and using vb.net as the programming language.i have few questions,
1. my database is in one computer. this computer is not actually a database server. it is just a computer. and the database is created in local drive (e:) of the computer. when i develop the application. so, if i am writing an application for the computer where the database is created. i can give the location of the database as my connection string (is there any better way to do this. because there might be problems, if the database location is changed). how can i connect to the database from the other computers in the same network?
2. this is my second question. i have a table which stores customer details (customer id is primary key and its auto number). one customer can have many hobbies. so i took it as a separate table (customer ID as the foreign key of that table) . when i enter data, i use single form to enter the customer details and their hobbies. so when i insert the record into two tables, will the second table take the new customer ID automatically into dat tables customer ID which is a foreign key.
I'm building an application that connects to a SQL Server 2008 database via connection string. The thing is, since the computer loading the app (or the user, in either case) is outside the Active Directory domain, I can't use Windows Authentication to connect to the DB. But when I include the database credentials, it won't let me connect either, telling me that since the computer logging in is from an untrusted domain, access is denied.
I created application database by vb.net and sql server 2005 now I have some computer on the one of them I installed sqlserver 2005 and other (Clients) computers I installed Application how I can connecting my application to sql server on the pc1 or how I can using connection string.
I have designed a project that connects to MsSql Server 2008. The local machine that I use to create the software is able to connect to the database but when I try connect from another machine remotely, It doesn't find the server.This is the connection string I'm using Dim Connection As New SqlConnection("Server=MyServer-PC;Database=MyDatabase;Integrated Security=True")
I have developed a frontend app using VB 2010 which is to connect to a remote MySQL server. My server has an internal IP address of 126.96.36.199 and an internal IP address of 192.168.20.44.
When I use the internal IP in my connection string and connect over LAN, the whole thing works fine. But when i changed the IP to the external address and tried to connect to the server over the internet, I get an error something like 'Failed to connect to MySQL server for user 'user'@'localhost', [using Password=NO]. This means that for some reason, it is not connecting to the server at all.
