Database Creation

Hi Guys, just started looking into Ignition so this is my first post.

Please forgive my ignorance!

Trying to demonstrate Ignition to a potential client. I have a Siemens S7 300 PLC on a simulation rig and can trigger the inputs on the rig to show on the Client window.

He want to see the historian side of when inputs and outputs come on and how long they were on or off for.

I have tried to create a database connection unsuccessfully but do have Microsoft SQL Server installed on my laptop but am unsure how to reference the 2 elements and to create a database.

Can anybody offer any step by step guides to creating one to demonstrate on a laptop?

Thanks for reading.

Best Regards,
