It is very easy to create a database using the Server Explorer. Hover the mouse over the Server Explorer. Expand the node for the server on which you wish to create the database. Expand SQL Servers node. Right-click on the node. Select New Database from the context menu. A Create Database dialog opens (Figure 3.12). Enter the name of the database you wish to create. Keep Use Windows NT Integrated Security selected, unless the server you are connecting to requires SQL Server Security. If so, select it and enter a valid user name and password that allows database creation on this server. If you are using the MSDE, use Windows Integrated Security. Next click OK. This will create the new database.
