    Default Error converting named connection to connection string

    I have asked this question before but the solution did not work.
    I am running Alpha 5 version 10.
    When I run the web server under the development suite and choose a specific database I can work with the data over the web.
    When I run the web server from its application none of the database connection work.
    I get the error.
    Error opening Grid table/view: Error 1000 - The filename, directory name, or volume label syntax is incorrect.

    Without knowing your setup, it is difficult to answer your question specifically.

    However, it sounds as if you may be confused by the working of the Application Server.
    If you are running the application server under the development suite on a local computer, you are not using data over the web, but rather data that is on your development machine.

    When you run the application server as a stand alone application, then the data files and the application files for your application must be located on the same server as your application server.

    I would suggest you check out the documentation at http://wiki.alphasoftware.com/Conten...ing%20Tutorial which should help you quite a bit.
