I'm working on VB.net(2005 studio) application that stores values.i'm using SQL server 2005 express.I dont know how to connect both of them.Is there any tutorial on the web for that?
I have tried but most of the result are points to the pages of SQL server configuration,manipulation related information.

One more question regarding Charts: With the data i collect on my VB application i want to make pie chart/bar chart within application,but i have no clue where is the component for it...is there any free component or MS have it in it.

You trying to connect databse with vb? you mean you want to show the data into the datagrid from the SQL database? If yes then that is really easy

drag and drop the datagrid onto the form and populate the data into it by connecting to a database - database connection is shown next to the toolbox (you got to look at the tab right at the bottom of toolbox right hand side)

For creating charts, VS2005 has built in Crystal Report Viewer which lets you show the data in the form of report, you can create pie charts etc with it as well.

Hope this helps
