        try
        {
            connection.Open();
            Console.WriteLine("ServerVersion: {0 \nDatabase: {1", 
                connection.ServerVersion, connection.Database);
        
        catch (Exception ex)
        {
            Console.WriteLine(ex.Message);
        
        // The connection is automatically closed when the
        // code exits the using block.
    

using System;
using System.Data;
using System.Data.OleDb;

class Class1
{
    static void Main()
    {
        string x = "Provider=SQLOLEDB;Data Source=(local);Initial Catalog=AdventureWorks;"
            + "Integrated Security=SSPI";
        OpenConnection(x);
        Console.ReadLine();
    

    static void OpenConnection(string connectionString)
    {
        using (OleDbConnection connection = new OleDbConnection(connectionString))
        {
            try
            {
                connection.Open();
                Console.WriteLine("ServerVersion: {0 \nDatabase: {1", 
                    connection.ServerVersion, connection.Database);
            
            catch (Exception ex)
            {
                Console.WriteLine(ex.Message);
            
            // The connection is automatically closed when the
            // code exits the using block.
