Connect Method

This feature will be removed in a future version of Microsoft SQL Server. Avoid using this feature in new development work, and plan to modify applications that currently use this feature.

The Connect method attempts to establish a connection with a named instance of Microsoft SQL Server.

object.Connect( [ ServerName ] , [ Login ] , [ Password ] )

object

Expression that evaluates to an object in the Applies To list.

ServerName

Optional. A string that specifies a named instance of SQL Server.

Login

Optional. A string that specifies a SQL Server login by name.

Password

Optional. A string that specifies a password authenticating the SQL Server login.

HRESULT Connect(SQLDMO_LPCSTR Server = NULL,
SQLDMO_LPCSTR Login = NULL,
SQLDMO_LPCSTR Password = NULL);

When the ServerName argument is not specified, the SQL Distributed Management Objects (SQL-DMO) application attempts to connect to an instance of SQL Server using the network name of the computer on which the application is running. If that computer is also running an instance of SQL Server, a connection is established to that instance of SQL Server.

Use the Login and Password arguments to specify values used for SQL Server Authentication. To use Windows Authentication for the connection, set the LoginSecure property to TRUE prior to calling the Connect method. When LoginSecure is TRUE, any values provided in the Login and Password arguments are ignored.
