In my start menu, I have Microsoft SQL Server Express 2008 R2 > Configuration Tools. In this folder, I have SQL Server Configuration Manager, SQL Server Error and Usage Reporting, and SQL Server Installation Center. Where do I go to create a new database from scratch? I must be looking in the wrong place.

Edit: What I am trying to do here is import two Excel sheets containing data from two other non-SQL-Server databases so I can run a few queries for data comparison. I don't have Acceess, otherwise I'd use that instead.

I finally figured out that I didn't have SQL Server Management Studio installed. I had to open up SQL Server Installation Center. From the left pane, I selected Installation. In the right pane, I then selected New SQL Server stand-alone installation. I will be marking this as the answer.
