 2. RMB on Models FOLDER, Add, ADO.NET Entity Data Model
      ** Server = DBTEST
      ** Database = MVC_test (make sure table has "PK=ID" so Edit, Details, Delete work
 3. REBUILD
 4. RMB on Controllers FOLDER, Add, Controller, Default1Controller
      ** Template = MVC with read/write actions and views, using Entity Framework
