What exactly is "your machine"? Are you referring to your development
computer? Right-click on "Server" in the Server Explorer and choose "Add
server...".

Regan,

I was wondering the same thing because I have started the ADO.NET
Step-by-step book and it has instructed me to attach the Northwinds database
to my SQL Server. I don't have a Server node either and this is why:

Servers Top-level node that lists the servers currently available for
use. Beneath each server node are listed the databases and server resources
you can use in your applications. For more information, see Adding New
Servers in Server Explorer.
The Servers node of the Server Explorer is not available in the
Standard Edition of Visual Basic .NET and Visual C# .NET. See Visual Basic
Standard Edition Features.
I copied this from the MSDN article noted. I do have the Standard Edition.
