I am having trouble getting started. I set up a database connection and test the connection successfully. When I try to view the database tables, it get this message: "[Microsoft][odbc sql server driver] login failed for dbuser"

The database connection test successfully for dbuser, I just can't login. I am trying to login to a remote database.

Try to use OLE DB provider for SQL Server instead of ODBC driver. Here is the connection string you can use:

Provider=SQLOLEDB.1;Password=***Persist Security Info=True;User ID=***;Initial Catalog=DatabaseName;Data Source=ServerName

You can enter the connection string by right-clicking the connection name in the Object Browser. Choose the Properties option. You will see the the Connection String text box where you should enter appropriate value.

You can find a video that shows you how to connect to a remote SQL Server database. Please visit this page:
