SPD Database manager


Does anyone know if ST7 standard parts administrator can use a SQL connection to a 32-bit server?

I have the SPD on the server and can open it in Server management studio and all’s good, but I can’t get a connection from the SPD administrator database manager. The use External network database asks for a server name, user name and password. I have given the database a user name and password but it won’t connect, the error is “cannot connect to database server, server is down or login info is incorrect.

Can anyone shed any light on this please?
