Select a Connection String

This page allows you to specify a connection string to be used to establish a data connection.

The following two options are available.

  • No, specify a custom connection string - Select this option to specify a connection string manually.
  • Yes, let me choose an existing connection from the list - Select this option to use one of the existing connection strings from the list.


Click Next to proceed to the next wizard page. If you select the first option, proceed to the Specify a Connection String page. If you choose one of the available connection strings, go to the Bind to a Stored Procedure or Select a Data Member page, depending on whether or not the current Entity Framework model provides stored procedures.
