Hi

You have a couple of questions in this news group that seems to indicate
that you have a problem with the installation of SQL Express. It is either
missing or not running correctly on your computer.
When you install Office Accounting it will automatically install SQL Express
as well.

I will initially assume that SQL Express was installed so the problem might
be that the SQL service is not starting automatically for some unknown
reason.

- In Windows could you go to Control Panel / Administrative Tools / Services
- Find the service called "SQL Server (MSSMLBIZ)".
- Make sure that it's status is "Started" and that the Startup Type is
"Automatic" - you can double-click the service to change the options.

Let me know if this solves the problem or you need further info.
