I have installed WAMP on my machine.  I want to setup a small sample sql database and use a C# windows application to insert data into this sql database.

Can anyone help me with this?

Yes, I built a point of sales system in c# that uses mysql (not a fan of mssql, but c# is pretty cool).

Check out this tutorial:

If requires a plugin (mysql connector), but after that, it's just like using sql in any other way.
