Re: How to make Database connection in ASP.NET
please add the follwoing code in you aspx.cs page.

Step 1 : Add Namspace "using System.Data.SqlClient;"

Step 2 : Make Sql connection.

Write this code to create Sql connection.
SqlConnection con = new SqlConnection("Server=You server name or comp name;Database=Yourdatabasename;Trusted_Connectopn=True");
SqlCommand cmd = new SqlCommand("Write your sql query here eg. select * from Table name");
DataSet ds = new DataSet(cmd,con);
SqlDataAdapter da = new SqlDataAdapter();

i hope this should work

Re: How to make Database connection in ASP.NET
1: Open visual studio 2005 and from FILE select NEW-> WebSite, then from pop-menu select
website (Note: Language must be C#) , then press OK.

2: Now create three textboxes from the toolbox , to remove ambiguity I am using default name for that textboxes and that should be textbox1,textbox2 & textbox3. And also drag & drop the button to the application.

3: Meanwhile, Open SQL SERVER Management studio 2005 and open adventureworks(or you can create your own database by the Sql command CREATE DATABASE database_name), but here I am using AdventureWorks database.

4: Then create table by clicking right mouse button and form three column, Name them according to your requirement , for your information only I used EID,name,Address. And click save button, then you?ll get a pop up menu where you have to enter the Table Name, for this example I used students.

5: Now Come Back to Visual studio Application and write the following code in the button_click event.


protected void Button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)
SqlConnection myConn = new SqlConnection();
myConn.ConnectionString = ?Connection string(See Below for this ? )COPY PASTE  HERE?;

string strqry = ?Insert into students values (? + TextBox1.Text +
?,?? + TextBox2.Text + ??,?? + TextBox3.Text + ??)?;

SqlCommand myCom = new SqlCommand(strqry, myConn);
int numrow = myCom.ExecuteNonQuery();
