VS.Net - Opening SQLS2k Stored Procedures in the IDE

P: n/a
I can't seem to open SQLS2k Stored Procedures in the IDE

I am running MDE 2003 Version 7.1.3088
I have a MSDN professional subscription and did a complete install of
vs.net

Help explains how to do it:

1. In Server Explorer, expand the Stored Procedures folder.
2. Double-click the name of the stored procedure you want to open.
-or-
Right-click the name of the stored procedure that you want to open,
and then choose Open on the shortcut menu.
The stored procedure is opened in a text editor that you can use to
edit the SQL statements.

In tutorials I have seen the stored procedure was dragged into the
work area.

None of that works!

When I Double-click the stored procedure it just expands to show the
parameters

When I Right-click the name of the stored procedure the shortcut menu
shows
Run Stored Procedure
Refresh
Copy
Properties

When I drag the stored procedure into the work area it gives me that
circle with slash (the 'can't' or 'no' sign)

Other related functionality; i.e. Creation of Stored procedures is
likewise un available.

What should I do to gain this functionally?

Are you in a database project? In any event, you should consider using
the Query Analyzer (and the other SQL Server client tools like
Enterprise Manager) for creating database objects because they have
more complete functionality for creating, securing, optimizing and
securing SQL Server objects.

Mary,

Thank you for your reply.

Yes I am using SQLS2k.

I certainly can use Query Analyser, and it is local on this machine.
However since the IDE is supposed to be integrated with SQLS2k I was
wanting to explore that functionality.

(The fact is I have two systems with VS.Net and SQLS2k installed, A
laptop (WinXP) and a server (WinSBS2k3 Premium). Both of these are
missing the funcionality I referred to.)

With your advice I will consider putting my efforts exclusively to
using Query Analyser.

Could you direct me toward articles or resources on the "Best
Practices" of developing db windows form projects with VB.Net and
SqlS2k?

Thank you,
Doug

Here's a good link for best practices for SQLS 2k apps:
http://www.microsoft.com/technet/pro.../sp3sec03.mspx

Also, read up on www.microsoft.com/sql and
http://msdn.microsoft.com/sql/, which is the SQLS developer center.
The .NET developer center is at
http://msdn.microsoft.com/netframework/, and www.gotdotnet.com has
additional resources.

Also, if you do want to use VS.NET, create a database project --
that's where you get the most functionality.

You need the enterprise version of VS.Net. The Pro version works with MSDE.

Eric,

That's strange! It does so many other things with SqlS2k.

Can you please direct me to a help page or some other resource that
specifies just what each versions can and can't do.
