unable to create table RRS feed

  • Question

  • 'Addresses' table
    - Unable to create table. 
    Timeout expired.  The timeout period elapsed prior to completion of the operation or the server is not responding.


    thats the error i'm getting


    i have vb express


    i went along the exercises.


    got to the place where i am supposed to create a database within vb, which i did.

    then i am supposed to make a table called addresses, but i cant do it.


    sql server express was also downloaded when i downloaded vb. is it supposed to be running in the background or something?


    is the db supposed to be created there -in sql server- first? or what?


    if i click on programs/sql server,i get 'configuration tools', and i get 3 tools, thats it:

    1-sql server configuration mgr

    2-sql server error and usage reporting

    3-sql server surface area configuration



    I am following the instructions described here, but as you can see,

    it says nothing about any steps that have to be done in sql server.

  • when in doubt, reboot.


    The maxim holds true, even after all these years.
