VB 2008 Express & SQL Server 2005 creating Data Source.

  • 12 years ago

    I am trying to add a data source in VBE 2008 to a MS SQL 2005 data base and keep getting the message, This file is in use, Enter a new name or close the file thats open in another program.

    I am sure that the data base file (mdf) is not in use and have even created a new data base to try.

    Does anyone have any ideas?
