Default Beginning ASP.NET E-commerce with VB.NET


Can someone please help me with this problem? On page 83, it tells you to add the following lines in the Web.config file:

<add key="ConnectionString" value="Server=(local)\NetSDK;UserID=sa;Password=;I nitial Catalog=WroxJokeShop" />

The book says you need to modify the stored connection string depending on your particular SQL Server Configuration. I am running Windows XP and would love for someone to walk me through what I need to change on the SQL Server Properties and the above coding.

You need to change the value of:

 Server=(local)\NetSDK to the name of your SQL server
 UserID=sa to a user name with right on the SQL Server to do what you want done
 Password= to the password of that user.

Just like you would any other connection string that you would use on any other program...
