I have installed Microsoft SQL Server 2005.

When I go to: Start --> All Programs --> SQL Server Management Studio Express

I don't get the Connect button highlighted, and the Server name text box is empty.

What should I do in order to connect to a database?

Thanks a lot.

I don't get the Connect button highlighted, and the Server name text box is empty.
Since there is no server name specified, the connect button is not highlighted/enabled.

What should I do in order to connect to a database?
Provide the database server name in the server. Then provide the connection crendetials. Try to connect now.
