I am learning visual studio 2008 . I want to join my project with sql server 2008(Specifically not any other like oracle or mysql ) . Firstly I want to create database name "Library " but when i open SQl server Management studio it opens but it opens one more small windows it says connect to server. but I run it on my home pc as I want to study so when I connecet it with my pc and I open database file which already written by some one else it shows me Message
"Unhandled exception has occred in a component in your application. If you click countinue .the application will ignore error and attempt to countinue .
Object reference not set to an instance of an object." 😒

well, this was when I try to run new script. 😒

But I want to create new database and make tables and records of my own on SQL server can any one give me steps or links which help me.

@safwan • 25 Sep, 2009 I searched on MSDN but still its not appropriate on it .
@Mahesh Dahale • 25 Sep, 2009 Connecting to server
There is an authentication in authentication there are 2 types
1) SQL server authentication
2) Windows authentication
This is set to windows authentication
There are 2 tabs on the connect to server dialog box : the login tab and the Connection Properties tab
To view the conn. Properties tab click the Option button. Use the connection properties tab to input authentication credentials and server name
if your PC name is Home then Server name will be HOME\SQLEXPRESS
I think it will help you And also
