USE (SQL Server Compact)

Changes the database context to the specified SQL Server Compact database. You use the USE statement to specify a SQL Server Compact database file on which to query when using SQL Server Management Studio.

USE { [database] }  


The name of the database to which the user context is switched. Database names must conform to the rules for identifiers.

While enclosing the database name in brackets ([ and ]) is optional with SQL Server databases, it is required when you use SQL Server Compact databases.

The following statement switches the database context to use a database file stored in the root directory of the C drive on the local computer.

USE [c:\MyNewDB.sdf]
