I am doing an upgrade to a project from about 6 mos. ago. This is a windows app (ADO.Net) coupled to a database (SQL Server 2000). I added 2 new tables to the database. I have a new form (in the windows app) that needs to acces these 2 tables. When I go look for them in  VS2005 server explorer, or under the Data Source window, the new tables do not show up. It's been a few months since I had to do this, what am I doing wrong?

Thanks

Are you sure, you are modifying the correct database? If the answer is yes then I have several suggestions:

First, Try refreshing the database by doing the following:
 1.) On the server explorer, right click the database then click refresh.
 2.) Then check if the database is updated with the new tables.
 3.) If this don't work, try the second suggestion.

Second, Try modifying the database connection:
 1.) On the server explorer, right click the database then click modify connection.
 2.) Insert or update all the required fields.
 3.) Then check if the database is updated with the new tables.
 4.) If this don't work, try the third suggestion.

Third, create a new connection:
 1.) On the server explorer, right click the database then click delete.
 2.) On the server explorer, right click Data connection then click Add connection.
 3.) If this don't work, try the forth suggestion.

Forth, check for the latest updates in microsoft.

Fifth, Repair visual studio 2005.

Thank you for jarring my memory. I had to step away form it for a little while. I had connected to the right server but not the right database, one that had very similar table and info. Once I made the right connection it was fine. # 3 was the right procedure.
