ADO and ADO.NET SQL database connection strings


This site was created as an online reference for various ADO and ADO.NET SQL database connection strings. We have tried to list the most popular database connection strings and to give examples of their usage. As our background is with Microsoft technologies, we have great deal of connection string for MS SQL Server and MS Access including SQL Server ODBC connection, SQL Server OLE DB connection, SQLConnection .NET, MS Access ODBC connection, MS Access OLE DB connection, MS Access OLEDBConnection .NET, etc.

We have also created an online database glossary, giving definitions for the most common database terms like ODBC, OLE DB, ADO, database cursor, database transaction, etc.

If you are new to SQL language, make sure you check this comprehensive SQL Tutorial.

This site is by no means a complete reference for every existing database, but is merely attempt to give our fellow software developers a handy database connection strings reference. Have fun :)!
