I have a VB.Net application which connects to an SQL2000 database and I recently upgraded to SQL2005 and after the upgrade my app does not want to connect to SQL2005 using the same password I used to connect to SQL2000. if I change the login password to all uppercase characters in SQL2005 Management Studio my app can connect but if I change the password to lower case it cant connect. am I missing something?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Connection passwords in SQL Server 2005 and up are case sensitive. In SQL Server 2000 and below the passwords were not case sensitive.
