I tried to connect asp with SQL Server but it doesn't work. This is my code:


conn = "Provider=SQLOLEDB.1;Data Source = "
+ Server.Mappath="/aspProductCatalog/database/aspProduct_Data.mdf"


var rs, rs2, cn, msg

cn = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection");
rs = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Recordset");
sqlstring = "Select * From Admin", cn);

Error Type:
Microsoft OLE DB Provider for SQL Server (0x80004005)
[DBNETLIB][ConnectionOpen (ParseConnectParams()).]Invalid connection.
/aspProductCatalog/test.asp, line 13

* This is the first time I post topic, so maybe I make some mistakes, plz forgive me!

Your connection string looks more like Access (which identifies a specific database file) rather than SQL Server (which identifies a Server and Database name).

See for examples
