    Unanswered: how to set password when installing MSDE (was "Newbie to SQL")

    Hi Guys,

    I am Access user of both BE and FE. I would like to set my BE with SQL

    Therefore, as trial I just downloaded MSDE2000A.Exe a Desktop SQL Engine from Microsoft. I need to install it. But due to some technical aspect (which I might not understand) I could not install it. Bcz whenever I am trying to install its setup file, it ask me a strong password. How to set it ? or how to supply it I dont know...

    Any help.

    Regards,
    Ashfaque

    I'd suggest using the Access Upsizing Wizard as a start. It isn't a complete solution, but it gives you one heck of a head start! Microsoft has a great "How to", and there are versions for 2000 and 2002.
