I am using SQL Server 2005 Express and i wan to connect my MS accesss font end to a database I have created in SQL Server. I know how to set up ODBC connections but where I am having difficulty is pointing to where SQL SERVER Express has the actual database with in its system.

How can I find the database I created? Where is it usually kept on my gard drive?

Thanks in advance for your assistance.

Normaly C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL.1\MSSQL\Data but you don't need this location when defining a ODBC connection to a SQL Server database. Use the SQL Server Driver en al you need is the server name and the name of your database.

        This works but I get an error messageindicating SQL Server ODBC Connection timed out. Possibly the SQK Server Express 2005 is not set up to allow external ODBC Connections. I will write another question to handle this problem
