Invalid URI

Topics: Database Publishing Wizard, Using SQL Server in Hosted Environments

This looks like an excellent product - if only I could get it to work!
I have a sql database on my local machine and want to export it to a hosted server. I have made the connection, but when I test it I get the following error -

TITLE: Test failed
Invalid URI: The format of the URI could not be determined. (System)

I am fairly new to this, so maybe I'm missing something very obvious. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hi Alex

Are you trying to publish the database directly to your hosting provider? If so, you will want to double-check the URI you put in (you can check this by going to the Output selection screen and clicking "More..." to see the providers you have created).

Thanks, and let us know if you have any more questions.

Hi Himanshu,
I am putting in the name of the server in webservice address, database name, my user name and password, and I get the same error all the time.
I used to be able to use the export function in sql2000 with the same details. If you can give me an email address I will provide you with the userid / password for you to check if that's possible.
What does URI stand for?

Many thanks,
