SQL Server 2000

When you create a project, the Visual Studio environment creates a solution to contain it. If you plan to create a multi-project solution, see Multi-Project Solutions.

To access Solution Explorer, click Solution Explorer on the View menu.

To create a new solution

  1. On the File menu, point to New, and then click Blank Solution.
  2. In the New Project dialog box, click Visual Studio Solutions.
  3. Optionally modify the solution name in the Name text box.
  4. Optionally modify the path for the solution in the Location text box.
  5. Click OK.

To add an item to a solution

  1. In Solution Explorer, select the solution.
  2. On the File menu, click Add New item.

    The Add New Item – Solution Items dialog box appears.

  3. In the left pane, select a category, and in the right pane, select a template.

    Solution Explorer displays the item in a Solution Items folder.
