hi, I use Visual Studio 2008. I wonder how to connect the Visual C++ to my SQL server (.mdf extension). in seems easy to connect visual basic and visual C# from data source to their project. but in Visual C++ when you want to add a data source ; the only data source it's appear is Objects. but when you request it from Visual basic or Visual C#; the data source are : Object, Database, and Service.

please, help me with clear steps which can let me connect the SQL server to my Visual C++.

And thanks for advance
