I have an Access database that has 4 tables and many forms, queries, and macros. I already exported the data from the 4 tables in Access to SQL Server and I deleted the tables in Access.

Now, I need to hard code the SQL Server connection info into the Access database so that when a user opens the Access file, it will automatically connect to SQL Server without asking for any username / password info.

I know how to setup a User DSN on my pc so that I can connect to SQL Server, but that will not work in this case. I need the SQL Server connection info hard coded into Access so that I can distribute the Access database by email, etc to various users.

I believe this is a very simple thing to do, I just don't know how. Let me know if I am wrong. Attached is the Access dataabse.

Enter a generic connection string into the Access database and I will edit it with my ip address, username, password, and database name.

Provide a description of how the connection string was entered into the Access database for future reference.

Complete and fully-functional working program(s) in executable form as well as complete source code of all work done.

Complete copyrights to all work purchased.

All run on Windows 98 and 2000.

Must be 100% finished and received by buyer on:
May 2, 2002 EDT
Deadline legal notes: All times are expressed in the time zone of the site EDT (UT - 5). If the buyer omitted a time, then the deadline is 11:59:59 PM EDT on the indicated date.
