database tools

P: n/a
I have the msdnaa version of visual studio.net 2003 it is supposed to have
the data tools but doesn't. for instance when I right click on view in the
server explorer while in the sql 2000 northwind database i don't get the
option to create a new view.
Can anyone tell me what might be wrong.
Thanks

Len,

The reason you don't see the option to create a new view is because MSDNAA
version of Visual Studio .Net 2003 allows creation of database objects
(like tables, views, stored procedures, etc) from server explorer only
against SQL MSDE version and not against SQL Server 2000 or SQL Server 7.0.
In order to be able to create views (and other objects) in designers
against SQL 2000, you will have to use either Enterprise Developer or
Enterprise Architect editions.

Thanks!
