  • Hi suiyuejinghao,

    Please tell us which version of Visual Studio are you using?

    If you are using Visual Studio 2013, please download and install the SQL Server Database Tools from below link first.

    If you are using Visual Studio 2015, please checked the "Microsoft SQL Server Data Tools" to install the SQL Server Database tools to let your Visual Studio 2015 support database project.

    If any other version of Visual Studio, please feel free to let me know.

    Then you can connect your database from Visual Studio from Tools -> Connect to Database -> input your database information to connect your database.

    Best Regards,
