Its been about three years or so since I worked with my website design and SqlExpress. I can't remember how I used to open my databases and look at my tables. Can someone refresh my memory? I have ASP.Net 2008 and SQL Server 2008. I'm not sure if I'm supposed
to open the Sql management program and "Attach" the database or something else.

You can use the SQL Managment Studio program, but the easiest method is to use the 'Database Explorer' in VWDE to open your DB.

You can use SSMS to connect to your databse and explore it.

Thanks. I finally figured out how to do that. I just wasn't sure when I went into the Sql studio, if I clicked "attach" or not. But that work to allow me to look at my tables. The data was all encrypted tho so I didn't learn anything there.

VWDE (Visual Web Developer Express) is the free version of the web developer that is included with Visual Studio.

Go to sqlserver 2008, figure out sql server managment studio.
Set database and right click for attaching other data select from specific destination and go ahead.
