I want to connect to sql server 2005. so i tried the OLEDB Provider for SQL server, then i am prompt to enter the server name, user id, pwd, database,etc.
After entering, i select Finish but an error msg pop up, Login failed for user my username. The user is not associated with a trusted SQL Server connection. Can anyone advise me on how to resolve this problem?????

Read this: The user is not associated with a trusted SQL Server connection[^] and switch on Windows Authentication mode.

Change the Authentication Mode of the SQL server from
"Windows Authentication Mode (Windows Authentication)" to
"Mixed Mode (Windows Authentication and SQL Server Authentication)".

Does the user exist in the client's database?
