Question about Microsoft SQL Server 2005 Standard Edition
I am trying to connect to a SQL Server 2005 DB from my VB application from Visual Studio 2005. In the properties windows, when I try to mention the db name, its asking for sdf file and all we got is a mdf and a ldf file. How do I connect to the DB?
You must create an ODBC connection to your SQL database in the Windows Control Panel. Than you can call your ODBC connection via Visual Studio 2005. You can also create a DSN in Visual Studio 2005 and reference in that way. You will not be able to connect to an MDF but instead you have to connect to the SQL Server Service. Of course the username you use to connect must have access that will be created on the SQL server.
