This tutorial shows how the Server Explorer and SQL Server Object explorer handle similar tasks.
- I've got two different views of my data sources.…In Server Explorer, I've got a copy of Tours.mdf in here,…this is my persistent connection.…It's not currently connected.…And I'll do this by choosing to refresh…and over here, remember that I can right-click on this…and choose to browse in Sequel Server Object Explorer.…So now I see, it's showing up in here…under the database folder.…What's happening is, it's been placed automatically…inside this named instance of Local DE.…If you don't see it here you might have to click…on the refresh button.…
In both these cases, I can look at the tables…inside the database and work with the information…inside the database, change the tables and so on.…I want to talk about some of the differences…between these two windows.…If I go to the Tour.mdf file in Server Explorer,…one of my choices is to close the connection.…If I go over to the same item over here,…there is no close connection.…Another thing that's different is,…if I choose to delete the item here,…it's going to delete the data connection.…
