Hey All:

Reasonably new here, but I would like some help, please. I've referenced a SQL script in my application (C#, if it matters) in VS2012 (Express, if that matters). It's a script that will not change, it creates a SQLite database on the first run. Thing is, when I try to reference it via Properties.Resources.XXXXXX to load it, it does not appear, and the error message tells me there is no such reference. I can see it in the folder, I can see it in the Resources section of the solution explorer, but it will not let me reference it.

I understand that this file won't be able to change at run-time. I don't want it to.

I've tried:
- re-linking the file
- deleting and re-linking the file
- closing VS2012 and reopening
- closing the project and reopening

Getting frustrated, as I'm reasonably new (like, three weeks old) to C#, and VS. Thoughts?

Thanks in advance!

Solved the problem myself after researching another site. Turns out one can't "import" a text file into the resources, it has to be added itself via the text editor.

Thanks to those who downvoted me!
