This is probably a silly question, but I am new to this system and am very impressed with what I have seen.

I have started to build a basic website and all is good. My next thing is that I would like to display data from my sqlexpress database in the orchard website. Using ASP.NET this is simple - setup a sqldatasource etc and job done - I don't see how to do this in Orchard,

Can someone point me in the right direction please?

Same thing in Orchard, except that you'll have to opt out of the ambient transaction by wrapping your DB access code with using (new TransactionScope(TransactionScopeOption.Suppress))
