Login Failed to Newly Created SQL Database

Hello,
Running SQL Express 2012 and have created a database "Admin_Data".
Using ODBC connection I can connect to the system databases but get an error on the "Admin_Data"

Attempting connection
[Microsoft][ODBC Driver 11 for SQL Server][SQL Server]Login failed for user 'DOMAIN\username'.
[Microsoft][ODBC Driver 11 for SQL Server][SQL Server]Cannot open database "Admin_Data" requested by the login. The login failed.
Disconnecting from server

TESTS FAILED!

I cannot see what the difference is between the 2..

Any help gratefully received
Iain

Did you do the installation in Mixed Mode?

If you connect as SA and go to the database security, do domain users have permission?

This is an assumption, but did you change 'DOMAIN\Username' for security purposes or is that what it shows the login tried as?

Dustin, thanks for your reply.
Have tried mixed mode as well as Windows. I finally managed to get access by adding my Domain username into the logins section.
Ideally I wanted to give all DOMAIN USERS access to this database (With restrictions) . Hopefully to give some stability and control via AD.
DOMAIN\username was for security.
Although reasonably ok with AD etc I am new to SQL so would be interested if I am going about this in the best way.
Thanks
Iain

Yes, you can set your connection to use the integrated security and then assign domain groups/users to the database via the Security drop down.

You can set their permission level there (such as data reader or data writer) for the group/user.
