Quick Note: udl file

I always forget the name of this extension, hence why I am blogging it. If you want to test a db connection, create a blank file with a udl extension. When you subsequently open this file it will give you dialog to setup a db connection. Once done, if you view the udl file in a text editor, you will see the resultant connection string.
