    Hi all,

    been digging around in msde and wss 2.0 i have made various new lists on my
    site and when i go into my servers msde and connect to the wss database i
    can not for the life of me find the lists i have made.

    does anyone have a clue where a new list will live after being made?

    im connection to

    and then that brings up 6 databases

    and none of them have my new lists in them unless they are renamed for msde
    ? or maybe hidden?

    i know in 2000 server under spts and sql i could see my lists easily in the
    sql manager if i had one called TEST1 i would just load up the DB and look
    under tables and see TEST1 sitting there.

    Thanks if anyone can help

    If I understand what you're asking, the database would be sts_server_1 and
    within that database there is a table called "Lists" which stores
    information about the lists and a table called "Userdata" which stores all
    the content and references the "Lists" table.

  4. The information for WSS is stored in the database.. keep in mind that the
    only other supported methods of accessing the data is using the object
    models/methods discussed in the SDK



    Hope that helps,
