Attach a database file, located in the data directory, on connect to a local SQL Server Express instance using SqlConnection
This .NET Framework Data Provider for SQL Server connection string can be used for connections to SQL Server 2019, SQL Server 2017, SQL Server 2016, SQL Server 2014, SQL Server 2012, SQL Server 2008 and SQL Server 2005.
Why is the Database parameter needed? If the named database have already been attached, SQL Server does not reattach it. It uses the attached database as the default for the connection.
