On the File menu, point to New, and then click Project.

huslayer and Kumar, I'm using the 2008 R2 SQL Server Management Studio and following this link;

Network Monitoring is essential to ensure that computer systems and network devices are running. Use PRTG to monitor LANs, servers, websites, applications and devices, bandwidth, virtual environments, remote systems, IoT, and many more. PRTG is easy to set up & use.

What are you trying to do?

A SQL Query against SQL Express - then either of the top two options.

A Integration package?

SQL queries tend to be stand-alone files; none of the solution/project stuff from visual studio, although you can do some of that for larger projects

SSMSE doesn't support database projects, it's not like the full product SSMS.

in SSMSE you would create a separate files instead for your project.
