    Hi Community,

    I'm trying to create a step to connect to the database, but when testing the connection I always come across the error below:

    Do you know what it can be? I already have the sqljdbc4-4.0 jar in my shared folder.

    HI Ramos
             Please try the following:

    1. In case you have chosen the connection pool option, then uncheck it and try again. 

    2. Share the workstation.log file to see the complete exception

    Hi Ramos,

    Check the connection String for your step, it should be like :

    If the issue still persists please share the format for the connection string as well.

    In fact, one thing doesn't have to do with the other.
    I changed the connection string to what you recommended and it worked.

    Thank you for the assist,
