First I am new to C#. I attempting to build a simple windows form where you can send textbox info to an access database on the machine. When viewing online tutorials and book, I notice their is a step, form missing from my Visual Studio 2010 program when I try to add an exsisting database.
Here is what I am doing...
Add New Data Source
Choose Data Source>Microsoft Access Database File>"Continue"
This takes me straight to form "Add Connection" with Data Source Selected
and under that "Connection String". The "Advanced" button is greyed out.
In online tutorials and book, it appears I should have an "add connection" form with a browse button for selecting a "Database file name." and a "Log on to the database" group, but this is missing?
Any help would be appreciated.
I have also attempted to repair the installation in case soemthing was wrong.
On a side note, I can complete this action using VS express from another cpu.
