    PI OLEDB Connection String issue


      I am trying to create a connection to the PI db via a Windows form application in VS 2012 using the following code:



      using System;
      using System.Collections.Generic;
      using System.ComponentModel;
      using System.Data;
      using System.Drawing;
      using System.Linq;
      using System.Text;
      using System.Windows.Forms;
      using System.Data.OleDb;
      namespace PI_DBCon
          public partial class Form1 : Form
              OleDbConnection connPI = new OleDbConnection("Provider=PIOLEDB;Data Source=Server Name01;Initial Catalog=piarchive;Integrated Security=SSPI;");
              public Form1()
              private void button1_Click(object sender, EventArgs e)



      When I try to run the connection the form loads but when I click the button I get the following error:
