Connecting to SQL Server Express 2008 from Visual Basic.Net


C

CAM

Hello,

I am using SQL Server Express 2008 for my database and Visual Studios 2008 -
Visual Basic.Net for my forms. I Gone into VS 2008 and specify the source
of data using the Data Sources Windows following the wizard. I have input
the Server name using Windows Authentication, select the database name and
tested the connection it works fine. I created a form in VS 2008 added
text boxes and the data navigator, table adapter. It all seems to work fine
I can add data, delete data from the DataSet, but it's not permanent. When
I look into the table in SQL nothing is updated. I just cannot update my
SQL table at all. I don't know what is missing. Can anyone help? Any tips
or website to visit I would appreciate. Thank you in advance.

Cheers

Have you installed SP1 for your Visual Studio 2008?
It's my understanding that SP1 is required for SQL Server 2008 support.
