Hi

Depending on what SQL server you have (express or standard) i would install or use Microsoft SQL server management Studio.

There you can execute sql commands to create your database and tabels.

I think i may have been over thinking this.

I have been trying to create a new server installation (in express) in order to build a database. This never really made sense to me as that would require a connection to my machine to read the database?

I then noticed in Sever Management studio the compact edition to create a new sdf file. Is this what i am meant to be using?
I guess i create this sdf file in my inetpub/website folder so i can upload it to the website?
Is it best to save the sdf file in the root website directory or a sub-directory?

As you can tell, i'm starting at the bottom here, so many questions.

If i should be using something other than compact edition i'm stuffed because SQL server management studio can't find any database engines.
