Can I use ADO logic with Visual Studio 2005 Express?

P: n/a
I installed the Express version of both VS and SQL. But from VS Express I
can not see the SQL tables. I can not create an ODBC link to SQL Express
either.

I have no problems doing this using VS 2002 Ent and SQL Server 2000 Ent.

According to this page I should be able to do that...

Hello Steve,

I may be wrong, but obviously you have only native access to SqlServer via
System.Data.SQL and nothing else like ODBC and etc

SBI installed the Express version of both VS and SQL. But from VS
SBExpress I can not see the SQL tables. I can not create an ODBC link
SBto SQL Express either.

VS Express doesn't have the Server Explorer that comes with the
enterprise editions, so you can't just drag tables onto your form. You
can still create the same functionality by dragging on your own data
source objects, gridviews, and so on, and configuring them using the
corresponding wizards.
