Select a Connection String

This page allows you to specify a connection string and to establish your data connection using one of the following two options:

  • To use an existing project connection string, select Yes, let me choose from the list, then select the appropriate connection string within the list.
  • To create a new connection string, select No, specify a custom connection string.


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 an existing connection string, navigate to the Bind to a Stored Procedure or Select a Data Member page (based on your Entity Framework model and whether it provides stored procedure support).
