Re: How to create Database connection?

To make a connection with database follow the steps:
  1. Click New Connection.
  2. The Connection Properties dialog box appears.
  3. In Server Name, type or click the name of the server to which you want to connect.
  4. To use your Microsoft Windows credentials to log on to the server, click Use Windows Authentication.
  5. To use SQL Server authentication to log on to the server, click Use SQL Server Authentication, and then type your user name and password in User name and Password.
  6. In Connect to a Database, type or click the name of the database to which you want to connect.
  7. (optional) You can click Advanced to configure advanced connection properties.
  8. (optional) You can click Test Connection to verify that you can connect to the database by using the specified connection information.
  9. Click OK to create the connection.

Hope this solve your problem.
