I am new to asp.net. I inherited        A  big asp.net project,  I have some questions
1.      What  file do I look for to get the whole thing loaded in studio 2008
2.      Can I just edit .aspx file without messing  anything up
3.      The project has a database element to it. I have to make a testbed on my pc  but I just have the standard version without the sql access tools but I have sql 2005.
Can I build my database using  Microsoft SQL 2005 that is accessible by an asp.net  application built In studio 2008

Thanks Brian

1. A sln-file (solution file). If there is no sln-file, you'll need to load all the project-files (.proj) into one solution
2. Yes you can
3. You just need to configure the correct connectionstring in your application

1.      Solutions file (.sln). Sometimes if you use Web FOlder projects, you just open project as Folder in Studio - it automatically includes all the files into project.
2.      Technically you can edit just ASPX files without using code behind, but it's a VERY bad practice. Because it leads to "spagetti code" that is hard to support, understand and even write. So better use correspondent Code-behind files (with names XxxFileName.aspx.cs)
3.      Yes, of course. Just use SqlConnection, SqlDataAdapter, SqlDataReader etc and configure Connection String to create connections
