Default Chapter 12...

this just aint working. If anyone can make this work without getting an "login failed for user 'sa'"?

Here is my code thus far:

'Now we use this selection to open the connnection in the appropriate way
    if strDatabaseType = "Access" then
        objConn.Open "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;" & _
            "Data Source=c:\datastores\Movie2000.mdb;" & _
            "Persist Security Info=False"
    objConn.Open "Provider=SQLOLEDB;Persist Security Info=False;" & _
        "User Id=sa;pwd=;Initial Catalog=msdb;" & _
        "Initial File Name=C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL\Data\Movie2000.mdf"

    End If

What am I doing wrong?

You use SQL for database, don't you?
In my opinion, I think your error may occur when you,or say, your program try to connect databae by using 'sa' user, but in fact, your SQL login mode might be set as logining by using WinNT Way.
Maybe you can replace the code "User Id=sa;pwd=;" with these -- "Integrated Login=SSPI" to solve the problem. I think that may work.

I am having the same problem. I cannot get the Access connection string to work. Anybody with any ideas. I get the error at the OLEDB... point in the string and I do not see anything wrong with it.
