I have a project written in VB.Net. My updates to the SQL Server are working fine except when I restart my project all changes are lost. After a lot of searching I found that I have to change 'Copy to Output Directory' to 'Copy if Newer' or 'Do Not Copy' (depending which site I read) in the properties of the database in Solutions Explorer. I can change the Copy to Output in properties of the form but I don't have the database in my Solutions Explorer. Totally lost and confused. I am teaching myself from VBA to VB.Net.
Any help would be appreciated.
