Creating databases using SQL Server ManagementStudio Express
With the release of SQL Server 2005 Express Edition, TI students and professionalsbegan to have an efficient, professional and cheap solution for creation andmanagement of SQL databases. However, to the surprise of most, the Expressdistribution is not accompanied by any
to manipulate the databases and itsobjects. This happens because of the fact that all the Visual Studio tools have thecapability to manage the SQL Server from inside of its IDEs.In order for the database administrators to use SQL Express, Microsoft released afree tool called SQL Server Management Studio Express. This program, obtainedthrough download, substitutes the old “Enterprise Manager” and “Query Analyzer” of SQL Server 2000, now centering all of the database management in a single tool.In this article you will get acquainted with Management Studio Express and willlearn to create the database of a small library through the resources offered by thetool. You will also see how to create a Database diagram, insert
and export thedatabase created.
Download and installation of the manager
To obtain the SQL Server Management Studio Express, just download directly fromMicrosoft’s site at the
link. Havingdone this, simply install the software. After its installation, a program shortcut iscreated in the
menu of 
, inside the Microsoft SQL Server 2005 folder.
Gaining access to SQL Server 2005 Express
When you open Management Studio Express, a connection window with SQL Serverwill be opened, as

shows. In this window, you will enter the data forconnection with SQL Express existent in your machine. A detail to be observed is thatyou can, through the Management Studio, connect to a server SQL Server which is inanother machine in the net. Just click in the
Server name
box and choose the
Browser for more
option to search for the other server. In our example, we willconnect to the existing SQLEXPRESS instance in the machine itself (that, in this case,has the name PND).
