Editing the Connection String

You can edit the connection string of a project or a template project. For details on connection strings, see Defining New Database Servers.

To edit the connection string:

  2. In the Projects list, select a project.

  3. Click the Edit Connection String button or the Connection String link. If the project is still active, you are prompted to deactivate it. For details, see Deactivating and Activating Projects.

    The Connection String Editor dialog box opens.

  4. In the Connection String box, modify the attributes of the connection string, such as the database server name and port number.

  5. To test the connection string, click Test Connection. In the Ping Database Server dialog box, type the database administrator user name and password and click OK. If the connection is successful, a confirmation message displays. Otherwise, an error message displays.

  6. Click OK to save your connection string modification and close the Connection String Editor.
