northwind comes with sample tables and data. Yes you can use it to store your own data, as long as you know how to handle its existing data. If you want to use the existing tables to store your data, you may want to delete the existing data first. Or you can create new tables to store your data.

Well, you can manipulate the database in your code, start with this link:

 or you can download/install free sql server express from the following link:

 use its management studio to manipulate the database.
