SQL Server 2008 R2 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Can anybody please help? I am confused

    I have just downloaded SQL Server 2008 R2 (1,31GB)

    I have an ACER TravelMate 7320. Windows XP

    I have lots of Icons on the desktop!

    I want to be able to view whatever tables are in the database already, and I want to know how to add tables

    and insert, update and delete data

    My objective is to use SQL Server as a database in Net Express Cobol programs.

    Any advice will be most gratefully received.

    Many thanks

    You need at least Windows XP Professional SP3.

    After your installation is successful, you can use SSMS (Management Studio to view tables/databases).
