    Unanswered: centralized database using VB and SQL server

    hi to all,

    I am using VB as front end application and MS sql server as back end.
    I want to make the database centralized.
    does anybody know how to connect the database across the network?

    thanks in advance for your anticipation.

    The following Url gives you some info about the connection strings by which you may connect to your database from different front ends
    This URl shows odbc connection strings , search for the one which suits SqL db
