I have created and used a database for my asp.net application in SQL Server 2008. Now I would like to use that database in Visual Studio 2015 - in my local system for testing and development.
I am not getting the import option in visual studio 2015 application for this.
Can anyone suggest a way to use this in my Visual Studio 2015 application.

This forum is specific for ASP.NET Core, if you want to use databse of SQL Server 2008 then answer some of my questions here
1. Is it local db i.e. SQL Compact database?
2. Are you planning to use ASP.NET MVC 5 and newly released ASP.NET Core? Interaction with DB is little different now.

Many thanks for your reply. I have not posted this in the right forum - kindly move this appropriately.
Earlier I have used and created a asp.net application - I have started from scratch as an empty web application in visual studio 2010 and connection strings to my production database. Now I want to test this application in my personal laptop wherein I do
not have access to my production database; but I have a *.bak file from that production environment. I have the application - but unable to use this in visual studio.
is that possible/if yes, let me know.

I have a *.bak file
That will create a local copy of your production database. You should be able to connect to that from Visual Studio.
