In addition to Dave's comments, you are also connecting to your server using the sa account. This is an unrestricted super-user account, which should never1 be used by applications. One mistake2 in your application code will lead to a hacker or disgruntled employee taking over your entire database server, and possibly your whole network.

Instead, either connect using Windows authentication, or create a specific SQL account for your application which has only the permissions required by your application.

Also, if that's your real sa password that you've just posted to a public forum, then change it immediately. And this time, pick or generate a strong password, rather than something that would likely be guessed in a few minutes.

1 The only exception would be for tools such as SQL Server Management Studio, and even then only if Windows authentication cannot be used.

2 Even without a mistake, if this is a desktop application, a user could easily decompile the code, extract the connection string, and take complete control.
