Trying to set up a data service in VS2010 to use with linq to XML
Posted on 2011-03-19
I'm pretty lost here. I'm trying to setup a Visual Studio program to parse and store XML in a database. The XML is from embedded XMlL files in OpenOffice Word Documents.
I'm doing ok except with the parsing, etc, but getting the data into the database is a problem. The example I'm following says I need to add a server reference.
I'm not sure what database is best to use - compact model, edo, mdf, etc? I wasnt' sure even if SQL was working properly so I upgraded to 2008 r2.
The project no longer allows me to use the compact 3.5 database I had been using as the datasource for the Edo Model Entity object.
I know this is not clear, as I'm very new to this, but sure could use a little guidance.
