Default Connecting to SQL Server 2005 Express Locally

I've tried, and have so far failed, to use the instructions on pp239 onwards to create a new .adp using a new database.

Can anyone refer me to the idiot-proof, step-by-step method that should be followed for this part of this chapter using a locally-installed copy of SQL Server 2005 Express?

Many thanks

I figured it out, +/-, seems that the server name has to be followed by "\SQLEXPRESS", so "(local)/SQLEXPRESS" did the trick.
