Im using visual studio .net 2003 (not 2005) and I'm looking for a good database to work at and also helpful articles to help me, a newbie to c# and database, start creating a database and linking my forms' data from visual studio to the database.
1) If it is possible, how/where can I get templates or even completed database from people's app so that I can modify the codes and link to my program? Im sorry, but I've a time constrain now... I've been trying to do but failed as I could not understand the terms/meanings regarding databases...
2) What are the different database systems available that can be used with visual studio . net 2003 (yes, not 2005)?
3) What are the database systems available that provide a large data storage space and allow huge number of people to access/update the database at the same time?
4) I've downloaded microsoft sql 2005 server express. I've also spent the past few hours looking for step-to-step guide to start using and creating a database. However, up till now I still have no idea how to start using this sql server express. Any helpful links for newbies to start doing a database?
Im wondering, is visual studio .net 2003 compatible with microsoft sql 2005 server express? This is because I only see Deep Integration with Visual Studio 2005 titles/headings associated with microsoft sql 2005 server express.
PS: Anyone with similar experience regarding visual studio .net 2003 and has to create a database, please give me a tip or two..
Thanks for all the help! I appreciate it a lot especially if you can provide me with resources to question 1 above.
