Chapter 19. Using External Data > Using the Connection String

Using the Connection String

The connection string includes the source database type, database name, user ID, password, and dataset name (DSN). Each part of the connection string must be separated by a semicolon.

Each source database type has a valid name. This is the name that must be used when accessing that type of data. These database types are listed in Help in the Connect Property section. This is the name found in the Windows Registry under HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\ Microsoft\Jet\3.5\ISAM Formats.
