Connecting SQL server 2008 to Visual Basic - Need Help

Posted 31 August 2009 - 06:00 AM

Hi!

I have installed Visual Basic 2008 express edition, but I didn't get SQL server. Therefore, I installed SQL server 2008 separately, and it works fine..
But I want to use the SQL server in Visual Basic, but it doesn't show up when i click Add New Item. :cry2:

Is there some way of connecting VB to SQL server?


Thanks

- Viktor

Visual Basic 2008 means VB.NET.

Not to worry, a mod will move this to the correct place.

I posted it in this forum, because I choose "Visual Basic" in the beginners box..
