ASP.NET (C#) Question

Cannot find namespace 'System.Data.SqlServerCe'

I did include the

dll, put
using System.Data.SqlServerCe;
in my code, but when I open the .NET page I get:

The type or namespace name 'SqlServerCe' does not exist in the
namespace 'System.Data' (are you missing an assembly reference?)

I have nave no idea how to fix this. Thanks in advance.


This can be solved confirming following 2 points:

  1. Check whether you already have System.Data.SqlServerCe namespace added to the References folder of your application. If its not there you may right click the References folder and select Add references option. From the popup window go to .Net tab and select System.Data.SqlServerCe from the list and click OK to add the namespace to the project.
  2. If you are OK with step 1, add using System.Data.SqlServerCe; to the top of your code behind file which uses the System.Data.SqlServerCe namespace.
