I think i am doing this wrong, so please bear with me. I am working on asp mvc4 project. I want to add a entity framework to the project. So i presume i add it to the data models folder(it is generated from a database in my sql express). Now i want to create a DataAccess Class to read and write to the database using the DatabaseEntities Class, i put this class in the model folder. But in order to use this class i have to be able to reference the model itself. How do i do this, i try putting 'using project.' ? , no Data Model option! So either i am putting the DataAccess Class or the Model in the wrong place or i have totally missed something or done something totally wrong?

The solution is to ad the edmx to the models folder and use a code generator to generate the classes and data context. However now i have a new problem in that when i go to add a controller it does not see my data context?!
