Any suggestions?

Not sure what you've done, but I would guess the security isn't setup correctly and SQL Server is refusing the connection from ACT!. Is ACT! asking for an account to log into the SQL Server? Can you even connect to it with SSMS (SQL Server Management Studio)? m 0 l turbowrx03 May 1, 2010 12:01:08 PM SOLVED: It was a bad install. Re-installed and it connects fine. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources How to configure SQL server 2005 on printer?
