Server Explorer/View Designer issue

P: n/a
Here is the steps I took to produce this problem with
VS2003
1. Create a Windows Application. Place a DataGrid control
on a the Windows form. Name the control dgCustomers. Set
the CaptionText property of this control to Customers.
2. Open Server Explorer.
3. Expand the tree under Data Connections to show a SQL
Server data connection that points to the Northwind
sample database, and then expand the Views node of the
SQL Server.
4. Right-click the Views node and select New View.

With VS 2002 on the same machine, this will produce a
context menu with New View. But VS 2003, no menu option
is displayed to access the View Designer.

Hopefully, you have some suggestions on how I can fix
this problem and display the View Designer.

Thank you in advance for your assistance!

I figured it out. Actually, it happens on both VS2002 and
2003. I was looking at the book's examples under 2002 and
that is why I saw the New View context menu. The problem
is how I am setting up the project environment. If I
create a totally new solution with only one project, then
it behaves itself! Pretty odd behavior neitherless...
