Hi All,

Very new to DNN and to writing code.

So my question is "what is the simplest way to get data from a SQL Express 2012 table and display it on a DNN page. Also if possible it can be edited and deleted." 

There is no budget to buy any add on module, but I am sure there must be a free way to do this. 

Thanks in advance,

You can create a module that does that. There's not a lot that differs between writing DNN modules and creating stand alone .net web pages.

Search this site for module development tutorials to begin and be sure to get the DNN module development template here:

I use the reports module for this. If you have the reports module type one of the below statements in the sql box to test it.

select * from users

select * from userprofies

select * from userroles
