wvd2005 , sql , id and password request United States
  • 12 years ago
    I have just created a simple default.aspx connecting a gridview to a table in a SQL database. When running the page in a browser a Window pops up asking me to: Please type your username and password. Any ideas why this is happening and how can I eliminate it? Thank you Pati2005

    Hi, Do you have rights to access the server with the SQL database? It might be asking for credentials to connect to it. Regards Si

    Hello Si, Tks for the reply. How can I be sure I have access to the database? As far as I know I do have access. I have not implemented any restrictions to it. Best Regards Pati2005

    Hi, well you can check by connecting to it with the details you have set in the connection string. also, if you are deploying this to an IIS server, make sure that the ASPnet account on that machine has access to the database machine. Si

    Hello Si, I am using an IIS server. The ASPNET account has access to the database. I found out that it was a problem with the directory rights. I moved it to a different path and it is working now. Thanks for your assistance. Rgds Pati2005
