sql server 2008 express edition import export wizard usage

Posted By: jyothi     Posted Date: November 05, 2010    Points:2   Category :Sql Server
hi all

i created one windows application in c#.net and sqlserver2008. i have to give setup of application and database to the client. in client system there is no .net framework and sqlserver2008. so i installed sqlserver2008 express edition and .net framework 3.5 sp1 in client system. i imported database from flat file through import and export wizard of sqlexpress 2008 in client system.

but i am unable to connect that database.
is this correct process? if not please suggest the correct process

thanks in advance.

If you have database on your system, them you can generate script for entire database including all or selected tables, views and stored procedures.

Right click on database in SQL Server Management Studio -> Tasks -> Generate Scripts

Follow this simple wizard and at end it will give you option to save it in a file

Browse for file location and use the same .sql file to create database at client side

I know its dirty way of doing it, but its one of the options


1) Integrate this database creation in your application
2) Attach .mdf and/or .ldf file at client side (again dirty way)
3) Make database connection form in your application and use method 1).

Hope this helps

Hope this helps.
