I have a website that uses ASP .net and SQL Server Express 2005.  I was wanting to add CrystalReports functionalty to it.  My database is in an .MDF file, but whenever i Go to crystal Reports it finds the SQL Express server, but only shows these Database: Master, Tempdb.  How do I get it to connect to a SQL Server Express  (.mdf) file?

I don't know how to check with SQL Server Express.  Do you have an administrator?

The administrator should be able to check the database for permissions.
