- Getting Connected With SQL Server Management Studio
In my previous Hub, "So you want to learn SQL?" we successfully installed SQL Server 2012 Express Edition. Now I'll show you how to get connected to the database instance.
Step 2: Open the "New Database" wizard
Right click the "Database" folder in your SQL Server Management Studio Object Explorer.
This will open the "New Database" wizard.
In the "Database Name" field (highlighted in yellow), enter a meaningful database name. For my example, I chose - TestDB.
Step 3: Verify the creation of your database
Expand the [+] sign on the "Databases" folder in your Object Explorer.
You should see your newly created database name.
