Question Chapter 10 (#298) Data Connection Wizard Question


I have made it to chapter 10 page 298. The instructions ask that you create SQLDataAdapter and set the new connection. I do this and get stuck when the wizard asks for certain information. EX..
I am in VB 2008 Express:
1) The Data Source uses MicroSoft SQL Server Database File
2) I have gone to the default SQL Server 2005 Express Directory selected my database(ProjectTimeTracker)
3) I can not establish a connection
4) Can you help me ?
5) I have been able to get thru all the differences so far and I am up to chapter 10 and trying to finish the book. It has been a great learning experience..........
6) Thanks

How did you connect to SQL Server Express in the previous chapters?

Earlier in the chapters I was able to use sql connections no problem. I was unable to use the wizard to create a data connection. But I found the solution on Google.

(C:\Documents and Settings\username\Local\Settings\Application\Data\ MicroSoft\MicroSoft SQL ServerData\SQLEXPRESS

This allowed me to create connections using the Data Source Wizard an proceed with the project. THANKS
