Step 4: Creating Tables Like a Magician

The suspense is killing us, it’s time to create tables in our new SQL database. To make the magic happen, right-click on the new database you just created and select “New Table.” A whole new world opens up in front of you, where you can define your table’s columns, data types, constraints, and primary keys.

Oh, and did we mention that Visual Studio will generate a SQL script for each table you create, which you can use to create tables while in a different editor? Impressive, isn’t it?

Step 5: Connecting to the World

Now that you have created your table(s), the final step is to connect to the world. Feel the thrill as you right-click on the project in the Solution Explorer, choose “Properties”, select the “Settings” tab, and add your connection string. This connection string allows your application to connect to your database and interact with its information.

The Final Destination: Conclusion

Congratulations, you have successfully created a SQL database in Visual Studio! Feels like you’ve achieved the impossible, doesn’t it? We hope this journey has left you feeling exhilarated and empowered. With Visual Studio, you can now build efficient software applications in a user-friendly environment.
