How to: Create New Solutions

When you create a project, SQL Server Management Studio creates a solution to contain it. You can only open one solution at a time. SQL Server Management Studio does not allow you to create folders within projects. To organize your work, create multiple projects. If you plan to create a multi-project solution, see Multiproject Solutions.

To access Solution Explorer, click Solution Explorer on the View menu.
