Unable to connect to SQL Server 2014 via sConnString

Trying to connect to a SQL Server 2014 and receive the error : (System.Data.OleDb.OleDbException: '[DBNETLIB][ConnectionOpen (Connect()).]SQL Server does not exist or access denied.')

I'm not sure what is wrong with the code below.

This is my code:

' Set connection to the database
Dim oOleDbConnection As OleDbConnection = Nothing 'Create db connection
Dim objCmd As OleDbCommand = Nothing
Dim sConnString As String, strSQL As String, strSQLSelect As String

    'Connection string for database
    sConnString = "Provider=SQLOLEDB;Server=RICKNDELLM2800\SQLEXPRESS;Database=ExactMAXSAM;User ID=sa;Password=M@x@dm1n;"
    oOleDbConnection = New OleDbConnection(sConnString)
    oOleDbConnection.ConnectionString = sConnString

    frmimport.Show() 'to display subform

    oOleDbConnection = New OleDb.OleDbConnection(sConnString)
edit delete
are you sure?
