I am not an experienced programmer and am setting a small sports team DB using SQL Management Studio for our web site.  I have two tables.  One is TeamType.  It has a PK of TeamTypeID, then TeamName.  That will hold team types like baseball, soccer, basketball, etc.  Then I have a Team table.  PK is TeamID. I would like a FK of TeamTypeID.  But without coding, I don't see how to set this as a FK in the Team table.  Thanks for helpl

Within Management Studio, open the keys/indexes properties on the Team table. There you can create the FK.

I did that, tried that.  I established the relationship but there is no FK next to the field in the database design view.

Expand TEAM table -- > Keys and you should see the Foreign key.

Maybe I am doing that wrong.  When I go to Team table and go to Add in the Indexes/Keys it defaults to adding IX_Team*, which is I assume an index, not a key?  If I go to Foreign Key Relationships it seems to be where I can establish the relationship.  In this case I have a FK_Team_TeamTypeID.  Foreign Key Base Table=Team.  Foreign Key Columns=TeamTypeID. Primary/Unique Key Base=TeamType. Primary/Unique Key Column=TeamTypeID.  This looks correct to me, but there is no FK next to the TeamTypeID column in Team table, like there is a key symbol next to TeamID.  Have I successfully created the relationship and don't know it?

In VWD, Database Explorer there is no Keys in the Team table ladder.  All i have are the columns.

I opened the DB with SQL Management Studio and I see the keys.  But that doesn't show in VWD.  Maybe it just that way?
