HI, SQL Server Service Manager, is used to start, pause, and stop the SQL server. SQL server is a database management service. this service automatically starts during startup, by default. if u don't want it to start automatically during startup then click the icon on the task bar and check out the checkbox for automatically start SQL Server. and coming to ur question, whether it is useful to u or not, I suggest that if u r interested in gaining computer knowledge and that too in the database management, it worths a lot to you.

Go to start>help> type in SQL

You should see something like this:
Using Data Sources (ODBC)
You can use Data Sources Open Database Connectivity (ODBC) to access data from a variety of database management systems. For example, if you have a program that accesses data in a SQL database, Data Sources (ODBC) will let you use the same program to access data in a Visual FoxPro database. To do this, you must add software components called drivers to your system. Data Sources (ODBC) helps you add and configure these drivers.

Open Data Sources (ODBC).

Notes

To open Data Sources (ODBC), click Start, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel. Double-click Administrative Tools, and then double-click Data Sources (ODBC).
For information about using Data Sources (ODBC), click Help in the ODBC Data Source Administrator dialog box.
