"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

Hi Dave,

Thanks but tried all methods there but didnt work any suggestions with a sql query .

I just downloaded AdventureWorksLT.msi, installed it by double clicking on it, and then went into SSMS (SQL Server Management Studio), right clicked on Databases, clicked on Add, and added it to the server.  That's all it takes.
