Overview of Visual Database Tools
You can access Microsoft Visual Database Tools from your development environment to help create and manage data-driven applications.
The Visual Database Tools let you connect to a database and view and manipulate its structure and data. There are five tools in this tool set, each providing its own set of features.
Visual Database Tools works best with Microsoft SQL Server databases. If you are not using a Microsoft SQL Server database some features may not be available.
This version of Visual Database Tools does not support Microsoft SQL Server 7.0 and earlier.
For information on which features are available in your edition of Visual Studio, and for your database management system, see Visual Database Tools Editions.
