The Using reference for SQL in VS 2012 Windows Store.

The following link states it is the following..

       using System.Data.SqlClient;

But that has an error at .Data.. Trying to hand type it, the intellasense says there is no .Data as a choice.. Neither did I see any other winning combos.. Except For system.IO  and it doesn't work by itself and after system.IO the only next step in system.IO.Compression (which isn't it)..

Also opp. clicking on the error for SQLConnection or SQLCommand brings up no "Resolve" help where it will just add the Reference needed..

Hi moosetracker;

Please read this article on MSDN Magazine on Data Access and Storage Options in Windows Store Apps. Window Store apps does not support MS SQL Server, Express or LocalDb.

Thank you so much..  I have spent literally weeks looking for an async SQL solution and asking questions..  I got little response to my questions, but I thought after all that searching from bits & pieces of different articles I was ready to pull this together until I immediately hit a rock with the using statement..

You are the real help to point me to looking away from local SQL, to perhaps SQL lite or perhaps an index DB.. Although this article gives some basic commands hopefully surfing the net looking for different criteria will give me some good examples also..

Of course now I fear what SQL lite does not have that SQL had, problem being this Windows App is for my company who will have an in-house SQL asp.net program, which will be pushing & pulling data to their sales force who will have tablets with the Window Store app on them..

Hi moosetracker;

You may want to look into Web Services and the ASP.NET Web API as outlined in the article I posted. This is where the database lives on another machine the Web Service has functions that can be called by the Windows Store app and the results of that function/query returned to you via HTTP response as XML or JSON.

Good Luck.
