Default Database connection


I have a form where a user provide database connection info and than click "Test" button to check if given database info is correct or not.

If database is MS Access then user provides database name and path and if it is Sql Server than user provides sql server connection info.

Is there any command or script that check database connection info and find whether info provided by user is correct or not?

Thank you,
