I am sure that I am missing something which is why I am in need of the communities assistance...

I have installed SQL Server 2005 Express Edition. I can log in with the Windows Authenication and the SQL Server Authentication using the 'sa' account. This is all good...

What I want to be able to do is add 1 to 3 more users so they can gain access to the database I have created to run queries and add data. This is the part I am confused about. How do I get additional users added??

Thanks in advance for your time and assistance!

Go to Security-logins and give access to users. You need to read books online.

aaahh... I now see I was looking in the wrong section. I was trying to handle this in the <DatabaseName> > Security > Users section.

With your information, I was able to successfully add a new user. Thanks for the information!

I have a similar problem as TheNewGuy. I'm using SQL Server 2008 R2 Express. I want to add another user so they can share the database on my computer, but I cannot login to the server manager. I see fields where I can enter: Server Type, Server Name, Authentication, User Name, Password. Whenever I try, I get an error message.
