Default Connection String Help.

I need to change the connection strings in the project but, being a hard working begginer I am struggling a bit.

Normally my connection string would look like this :
"Integrated Security = SSPI; Database= myDatabase; Server = (local); Connection Timeout = 30"

I dont really understand the connection string used in the project. What is the netsdk bit. I dont have an account called that anywhere.

Can someone give me an idea as to what I should change the string to if my local machine is DELL ?

As you have noticed the server name is defined as "CHARUL\NETSDK". In this case the charul is the name of computer where MSDE is installed and NETSDK is the name of MSDE instance installed on machine name CHARUL. we can define this as follows .


In you case it will become DELL\YOUR MSDE (OR SQL SERVER) INSTANCE NAME.
