Default setting connection string in the web.config

hi, i'm having troubles in placin' a sql connection string in an appsettings tag in the web.config file.
the problem raise when i set the value attribute in the add key tag.
my connection string includes several "s and i used the token /u2022
where the "s must be placed.

<add key="sqlconnString" value="workstation id='\u0022'INFO-7834'\u0022'; packet size=4096;integrated security=SSPI;data source='\u0022'INFO-7834'\u0022';persist security info=True;initial catalog=dbapps">

i 've also tested:

example 2:

<add key="sqlconnString" value="workstation id=\"INFO-7834\";packet size=4096;integrated security=SSPI;data source=\"INFO-7834\";persist security info=True;initial catalog=dbapps">

and...worse for the compiler!!!

for the first snippet of code i got the following exception "Format of the initialization string does not conform to specification starting at index 23" where 23 is the position that is preceded by the first '\u0022' in the first example.
waiting for your help.

Hi there,

You don't need all the quotes. The semi-colon is used as a separator:

<add key="sqlconnString" value="integrated security=SSPI;data source=INFO-7834;persist security info=True;initial catalog=dbapps">

should do the trick.
