SQL Database - Where to start


  • For my projects requiring a local database I've been using MS Access.  This works just fine for now, but I wanted to learn how to create and use an SQL database but not sure where to begin.  I've done some reading elsewhere but can't really find a good place for newbies... anyone able to point me in the right direction?

    Thank you!

  • With a SQL Database can be meant many things. Some call every database which uses SQL transact code an SQL Database (so MS Access too). Others mean by that only a Microsoft SQL Server database (There is also Microsoft SQL Server Compact Edition which is not even a server).

    If it is about Microsoft SQL Server, then download SQL Server Express

     And get started
