You can create a dll by choosing Class Library in the project menu. Think of it as a group of namespaces or something, a whole set of functionality put together and that is reusable for other applications or other assemblies in your application.

However, a dll itself will not do something, you'll need an exe file which will be created if you choose the console or winforms/wpf projects, and then add a reference to use the dll. If you're totally new, start with a winforms and later move on the wpf.
For a first time I wouldn't search too far to hook up an application with an assembly, but basically there are three ways.
1. select one from your current solution
2. select one from the hard drive somewhere (optionally with a local copy or not)
3. If the assembly is added to the GAC, select it from there.

Just start out with 1.
You can also download VS2010 Express which is free (you'll need to register, but it's free) and SQL Server Express as well if you need it. (also free)

You can use MSDN[^] to find information on the objects and its members and this site [^] for more advanced help Smile | :)

Hope this helps somewhat, come back if you have specific questions.
good luck.
V.
