I host a website with sql database. Now I want to update my sql database table form control panel. But they( said that u need to do all this from sql server login.
Then I login in sql server management studio compact properly with server ip, user name and password.

But there is a problem. Sql server couldn't retrieve my created database and also when I click on database expand option then it displays error "failed to retrieve data for this request. (".

It will be really helpful if u give me proper suggestions.

You need to talk to your hosting service:

What you need is the ip address / server instance name and appropriate login details that they can supply - we can't because all systems are configured differently - many do not allow "remote access" for security reasons, so you can't get in via SSMS at all. They may mean a different "SQL server login" - from your code for example.

Talk to their technical support - they should be pretty used to it!
