    I am using Access as a reporting front end and SQL Server 2000 as its back
    end. The connection string I have been using has been working fine up until
    now.

    What has changed is that the front end now resides on a different domain
    than the SQL DTBS.

    Can anyone provide me an example of a connection string that will work
    across domains?

    Help is much appreciated

    If you simply wish to connect to a server not available in your network
    browse list, you can use the IP address in the ODBC properties connection
    tab, along with the credentials.

    To prompt the user for credentials:
