drag a database to Object Explorer

Hi there,

My database name does not appear in the object explorer area of the Management Studio (MS SQL Server 2008) because the server has too many databases there, as explained in the following link (by Lekss post): http://social.msdn.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/sqltools/thread/e5446d1d-6f22-492b-bf09-db952319298f

Pressing F7 I could find my database (say "aaababag" for instance), but now I would like to put it in the left hand corner, and keep it there for future use (for practical reasons, of course).

How should I proceed?

(Let me try to be clearer: I want to drag a specific database presented in the Object Explorer Details to the tree of nodes presented in the left hand side of the Object Explorer place.)

Thanks,
fskilnik.

Hi,

You could try creating a loggin that will have access to only the selected database.

Sorry for the delay and thank you for your posts!

@jyparask :  that´s EXACTLY what I want, and therefore EXACTLY what I need help.

@AkilaPalanimuthu : that´s EXACTLY the problem I face, but dmitri did NOT answer the question posed by rrrunner, although rrruner´s question is EXACTLY the same as mine, and what he/she said happened when he/she did what dmitri asked is EXACTLY what happens to me when I try dmitri´s suggestions...

I hope you (both) can help me further.

Thanks,
fskilnik.

My server sent to me a link on the matter, that explains, in short, that this is a problem (bug) without solution (yet)... therefore I guess it´s fair to consider the problem "solved".

I will reward you both for the good-will and suggestions!

Best,
fskilnik.
