Hi,

I would like to connect to a SQL Server in Visual Basic within an aspx application. I do have the connection string. How do I connect to the database and execute SQL statements?

Thanks

what is your exact problem?

use SqlCommand class to communicate with the database if the sql server is MS Sql Server

I think you meant SqlConnection class to communicate, as you run the commands against the connection.

Could you give an excample (code)?
SQL Statement looks like this: "Select name from person where id = '" + field1.Text +"'"
I'm interested in establishing the connection and then executing this query.
I would start by reading through this
