I'm definitely a Database newbie and I'm trying to get SQL Sever Express set up so I can create and play with a database. I managed to install SQL Server Express 2012 before and It allready had the Server name populated. I was able to go in and use commands to create a database and then play with queries.
My laptop (which had it set up correctly) has since died and I need to set it up on my desktop.
Before, the server name was Name-PC/SQLEXRESS. When I try to use that this time though it acts like that is not correct.
I also installed LocalDB because I think that's what I need...
I know this might be a bit vague but I'm at a loss to how to get this set up so I can create the database.
Thanks in advance.
