Default Error to change user instance

When I tried to access to .mdf file it gave me this error “failed to
generate a user instance of SQL server due to failure in copying
database files. the connection will be closed.” So then I found that I must change the user instance by using windows prompt. I typed “"osql
/s<your_server_instance_name>\SQLExpress /E"” it gave me this error "no user selected". So can you help me to solve this problem?
Thank you,

I'm not sure I follow. Are you trying to link SQL Server tables within an Access database?
