Use the connection string below:

"Data Source=yourmachinename;initial catalog=Northwind;Integrated Security=SSPI;Persist Security Info=False"

Well

You need to put in the correct machine name/or sql server name in the data source part. To determine the same in a simpler way, I suggest that you manually drag a dataset to your form design and from the properties set the connectionstring, once the connectionstring is set, you will be able to track the sql server name from there.

Mike
