Accessing my WinHost SQL database RRS feed

  • Question

  • New to programming and have a simple question. I created a SQL 2008 database on Winhost and I've been using Server Managment Studio to make tables. Now I'm trying to access it through entity frameworks but I'm not sure how. Not sure if this makes sense but I could use a nudge in the right direction.

  • Hello,

    Where is exactly the problem? The EF Wizard guides you through the process: Entering SQL Server name, choosing credential, selecting the database and the tables/view you want to use in your EF model; that's all.
