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.

    The maxim holds true, even after all these years.
