I have created a SQL Server Express database using MS Visual Studio 2005 and need to create an ODBC connection to this database to allow other non-vb.net applications to connect to it. When going into the ODBC configuration tool, I enter "localhost\sqlexpress" for the server and choos "SQL Native Client" for the driver. When on the section for choosing the default database, the database does not appear.
How can I set up the default database to reference this database file?
I appreciate any help available.
