    Default .mdf files, HELP!!!

    Hi, hope some one can help. I am helping a friend develop asp.net pages which connect to an msde local database. He emailed me various aspx files as well as the .mdf file for the database he has created. <BR><BR>I thought that since msde is file based I could just copy and paste the file in to the relevent directory and then connect as normal but it doesn&#039;t work, the database doesn&#039;t show up.<BR><BR>Any advice on accessing the database? I read somewhere that instead of a copy and paste he would have to dettach the database or something?!?<BR><BR>Thanks in advance...<BR><BR>The greatest intercontinental champion of all time.
