SQL Server Native Client 10.0 ODBCPrompt for username and password

This one is a bit tricky. First you need to set the connection object's Prompt property to adPromptAlways. Then use the connection string to connect to the database.

oConn.Properties("Prompt") = adPromptAlways

oConn.Open "Driver={SQL Server Native Client 10.0};Server=myServerAddress;Database=myDataBase;"


This connection string (Prompt for username and password using SQL Server Native Client 10.0 ODBC) can be used for connections to SQL Server 2000, SQL Server 2005, SQL Server 2008 and SQL Server 7.0.
