Howdy y'all,

I've held out as long as I can Wink  but cannot avoid it any longer.

Is SQL server 2005 express edition the only free one? If not, which is the best of the freebies to d/l?

Are there any good sites anyone can suggest that will hold my hand as I cross the bridge from MySQL to SQL Server? One that details the differences or discusses tools that can help convert between the two DB servers?

What about a 'SQL server 2005 for dummies' site that I can read for tips and tutorials, function/syntax references, etc, etc.

It is with a heavy heart and having been dragged kicking and screaming to this stage, but orders are orders and I just can't be fagged arguing the case for MySQL for this one particular application that "must use MicroSoft".

I'm with ya lossed!! I also need an adult to help with SQL.

@Lossed: I am pretty sure I saw "SQL Server 2005 for the blind" but that was difficult to read Frown

Maybe I should stick to MySQL. Rawlins seems to think its betterer though.

Look how long this request has withered on the easyCFM vine. Perhaps it's all in the delivery? Right then, how about:

Hey, all you MS SQL preachers, get off your @sses and prove your bill worshipping cult can be as helpful to beginners as the MySQL community. Lord (or should that be Bill?) knows had I asked the same thing of the free spirits of the MySQL community, the responses would have been significantly greater and more helpful than your piss-weak, insecure silence.

Wadda you reckon, m8? Will that win MS SQL friends and influence people?

MySQL community are young party people (like you and me Smile )

MSSQL community are old balding people who think Solitaire is the greatest computer game invented.

That'll be MS Access. Perhaps a class action lawsuit is in order?

Whilst it's not a particularly common distinction, some of the more anally-retentive in proper English society differentiate the masculine and feminine forms of 'blond/e' with the 'e'. With=female, w/o=male.

However, down here in the Antipodes, where seldom does anyone give a rat's for such refinement, my omission of the 'e' serves to reinforce to most how 'blonde' I must be for spelling it incorrectly. Hence my continued use thereof.

So I should say stoopid instead of stupid?

I concur with the law suit against MS. Maybe we should just blackmail bill.

My host provider is providing free upgrades to its existing customer from CF7 to CF8 but we have to upgrade our databases from 2000 to 2005.  I use Enterprise MAnager and Query Analyzer to access my data; can I continue to use this to access the data in 2005 or do I need to use another program?  Google is actually tired of me trying different ways of asking the same question.  Smile  

Cheers,
Chip
