retrieving connection string w/ ConfigurationManager

I am trying to store and retrieve connection string info from config 
file and I am having trouble retrieving the connection string info.

I stored the info with the following:

Configuration config = null;
config = 
ConfigurationManager.OpenExeConfiguration(ConfigurationUserLevel.None );
         new ConnectionStringSettings(
         "Server=local;Database=Test;Password=password;User Id=john;" ) );

I then remove the Add method and use the following try to retrieve the 
configuration info with the following:

Configuration config = null;

config = 
ConfigurationManager.OpenExeConfiguration(ConfigurationUserLevel.None );

string stuff = 

this fails because the value


returns null;

the configuration file has the following:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
       <add name="MyConfigurationString" 
connectionString="Server=local;	Database=Test;Password=password;User 
Id=john;" />

please excuse the formatting, thunderbird messages are a little hard to 
work with

thanks for the help

"Unable to connect to server" error 800ccc0e/800cccoe
I've gotten this error before, normally it means the server is unresponsive or non-existent. The problem I have is that I can ping the server, login using Horde (webmail) on the same server and-- worst of all-- can even use the server's I.P. address without any response. I also fail to send through any SMTP server, whether my own or my ISP's. I don't have Pc-Cillin installed, as the Outlook Support site suggested, but I am running Norton Antivirus. Is there anything else that could possibly cause this issue? Thanks! - Quiller Try turning off ou...

The users will have the same email addresses. Will the ADC cope with this? so in essense mail will flow to to the old exchange server, but then if it doesn't find a account with the email address as I would have either deleted it or removed the SMTP address, I then need i...

Keyboard Shortcut to toggle b/w Find and Replace and Active Worksheet?
Hi: I open the Find and replace Dialogue Box using CTRL+F and then enter the value I am looking for. Excel moves the cursor to the cell in question with the found value. Is there anyway to then use the keyboard to move from the dialogue box into the actual worksheet, without having to mouse click back into the open file? It seems there has to be some type of way to use the keyboard to move from the Find Dialogue box without using the mouse. I hope I am being clear on what I am trying to do, it seems very simple yet I cannot figure out what keyboard command to use to basically select the Exce...

OL 2003 drops connection to Exchange 2000
I have been running Exchange 2000 on a Small Business Server for 3 years and it has always worked reliably inside our network until we added some Outlook 2003 clients on new machines. The OL 2003 clients get locked up for 3-5 minutes at a time although they still have access to other network devices as well as the web. This happens 2-3 times daily for each OL 2003 client. Is there a compatibility problem, e.g. protocols, between Exchange 2000 and Outlook 2003? Thanks, Bill ...

Account gets updated everytime it connects
I have MS Money 2004 Deluxe. Everytime I allow automatic updates or force a manual update, 1 account always has activity.

How do I open a form w/ the last record showing first?
This is probably simple, but I can't seem to figure it out. How do you have the last record in a table so first when you open a form linked to that table. You can have OnOpen event call a macro action of GoToRecord but how do you determine which is the last records as Access stores them like a barrel of bricks, no set order. Better would be to use FindRecord. -- Build a little, test a little. "forchem" wrote: > This is probably simple, but I can't seem to figure it out.

SMTP Connection aborted when sending meeting requests
Hi, hope somebody can help me with a really strange problem: Exhange 2003, single server installation Since a couple of weeks we are encountering problems when sending meeting requests to external email addresses. The requests will be never received (I'm not talking about the format or something - the recepient doesn't get anything) and after Exchange gave up trying to send it, the user gets an error mail.
