I know how to create tables in SQL server 2005. However due to system problems I reinstalled SQL Server 2005. After that I select the option like this:

Start > Programs > Microsoft SQL Server 2005 > SQL Server Management Studio Express

My problem is that SQL Server Management Studio Express does not exist.

How can I solve this?

MSSQL 2005 Express does not come with MSSQL Management Studio Express, that is a separate (but free) download:

I think you did not correctly install SQL Server.

You will need to remove that completely and then reinstall correctly.
