I forgot to mention that this workspace is using the Mertech driver. I was not sure if that made a difference, but then I found this in the registry.

 [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Mertech Data Systems\DB Drivers\DataFlex\SQL Server Driver\v16\SavedConnection0]
Under this section I was able to change the server and database to the correct ones. I did not do see anything about "auto connect".
