Download the sample database(s)
- Click the following links:
- Click Save.
- Choose a location where you want to store this sample database (.mdf file).
Note You can save the .mdf file wherever you like, but one good place is to save it in the default SQL Server databases folder. You need administrator permission to do that. Typically, the local databases folder is C:\Program Files\Microsoft SQL Server\MSSQL11.MSSQLSERVER\MSSQL\DATA.
Attach the sample database(s)
- Start SQL Server Management Studio (SSMS).
- Connect to your SQL Server 2012 instance.
- In Object Explorer, right-click the Databases node beneath your SQL Server 2012 instance and then choose Attach.
- Beneath Databases To Attach, click Add.
- In the Local Database Files dialog, scroll to the downloaded .mdf file that you saved locally, select it, and then click OK.
IMPORTANT When using this method to attach, SSMS will by default also search for the .ldf file (which isn't included), causing the attach-process to fail. You must manually remove the .ldf before clicking OK as discussed in the next step.
- Beneath the database details list, select the Log file (filename ending with .ldf) and then click Remove.
- Click OK.
