Connection String Generator

These 9 lines of VBSCript code access the OLE DB Service Provider Type Library that is installed with ADO and will build a connection string to ANY database supported by OLE DB. Simply launch the VBScript file enclosed in the attached ZIP file, on the first tab select your Provider (Access, Oracle, SQL Server, etc), Click Next and enter your connection info (login, password, server name, etc), click Test Connection to test connection and when ready, click OK. When OK is clicked it will popup a VB InputBox that has your connection string as the default value in the text box. Simply copy the string and click Cancel to end the script.
