How do I connect to my database via .NET?

A website built using .NET can be connected to databases of different types: MSSQL, and Access databases.

You need to use a specific connection string to connect to each database type:


  • Server=myServerAddress;Database=myDataBase;User Id=myUsername;Password=myPassword;


As long as the placeholders in the above are replaced with your actual database connection details, it should allow a connection to the database.
