I'm new to VB
2005: Is there a limitation on VB
2005 Express Edition to connect to external databases? I try to connect to SQL server 2000 via the add data source... dialog. But when I want to add a new connection and add a new data source I can only choose from two options: 1. MS Access database file and 2. SQL server database file.
If I choose the second option and select the mdf-file, it won't connect. I feel I need to add the connection for 'Add/Modify Connection (Microsoft SQL Server)' (thus, without the 'database file' at the end of the connection type), but I cannot choose this type of connection. Is this a limitation of VB2005 Express Edition?
Thanx in advance for any help.
