[fdo-users] SQLServerSpatial: What is the connectionstring parameter?

In MapGuide Studio 2009 if you try to connect to a SQL Server database, it
auto populates the connection string with:

Driver={SQL Server};Server=[Insert server name];Database=[Insert database

Which is the ODBC format for a connection string and username and password
are passed from the data sources stored parameters.

This site, which I've referenced many times, might be helpful for connection
string information:

Hi All,

I just installed sql server 2008 express so I can play around with the
SQLServerSpatial FDO provider

When trying to create a connection, it requires the following parameters:

- Username
- Password
- Service
- ConnectionString

The first 3 are self-explanatory, but the last one is stumping me. What am I
supposed to enter here?

- Jackie
