There are two possible ways for giving the details: you can give the data below the General menu, or you can give the connection string below the Advanced menu. In case you give the connection string, it overwrites the data given below the General menu. In this example we give the connection string under the Advanced menu: Server=DESKTOP-4SIRROH\SQLEXPRESS; Database=ozeki; User Id=sa; Password=qwe123;
  • In connection string you have to give the availability of the server computer after the server. [IP address or hostname and the name of the ms sql server after \ (backslash)]
  • Database: give your database name
  • User Id: give your id
  • Password: give your own password
