How to Install MSDE

When I choose File, New and click the Project (New Database) icon, Access asks me to fill in details about my SQL Server connection, but I can't connect successfully.

You need to install the Microsoft SQL Server Desktop Engine with Service Pack 3 or later. Find the Office 2003 CD and run the Setup program in the MSDE2000 folder. This option is not installed by default, and it will not install automatically like other Office features. In fact, installing this program requires careful attention to setup parameters and security settings. Be sure to read Sp3readme.htm, found in the MSDE2000 folder, before trying to begin the installation. We also recommend that you read Knowledge Base article 810826 (http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=810826) to learn about setup switches required by MSDE Service Pack 3.
