SQL New Solution

I'm at; http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms173769(v=sql.105).aspx
And in my Studio I do not see the menu selection for a "New Project";
To create a new solution and project
On the File menu, point to New, and then click Project.

Why do I not see it/have it?

You will notice that the link above is for the 2008 R2 version.

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

Express File New but no Project

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
