SQL Server Database - VS Express 2013 For Web
Posted on 2014-02-23
Hi and Thanks,
I have looked all over the internet and it seems like there is no Database for the SQL Server, VS Express 2013 For Web,
What I am trying to do is get a sample database so I can practice writing ASP.Net Applications using database connections, on my Windows 8.1 laptop at home.
I have tried downloading the Northwind and Pubs sample database but when I try to bring it over to the SQL - VS Express it get rejected.
What I have done already is:
Right click the App_Data
Selected the Add
Selected the Add New Item
Selected SQL Server Database C#
I have downloaded the:
SQL Server 2000 Sample Databases (Folder)
Then I want some Sample data in the Tables so:
What I do is:
Right click the .mdf database in the Server Explorer section of VS Express 2013, select the Modify Connection in the menu, change the Browser to the correct location and select the database, but it rejects the DB.
I guess I am using the wrong Sample database and need a link to the correct Sample DB.
that will work for the VS Express 2013 For Web
Thank You for any help...
