    Unanswered: SQL Server 2000

    (1) Is SQL Server 2000 available for purchase today ?

    (2) If I want to buy a copy of SQL Server 2000 for a company with 12 staff members, which should I buy - enterprise edition or developer edition ?
    Please note that I am planning to upgrade an MS Access database to SQL Server 2000 and then build an Access front-end for it.

    Thank you in advance.

    Why are you not interested in using 2005? Moving to it now would save you an upgrade later.
    If it's not practically useful, then it's practically useless.

    don't be shy. if you already know 2000, 2005 is a cinch.

    download express and check it out - it's free.

    and nobody said you have to use any of the new features if you don't want to learn them. but i can tell you some of them are quite nice.

    Well, its not a cinch, but it is not an impossible learning curve either. Regardless, you need to learn how to use it sometime.

    Thanks. I got more questions:

    (1) When a company upgrade their Access database to SQL Server, do they need a DATABASE ADMINISTRATOR ??

    (2) Can I install SQL Server in any PC OR do I need a server ?

    (3) In the PC where SQL Server is installed, do I set a login password ?
    I have tried before but it seems there is no effect. Every time I opened SQL Server, it didn't prompt for password.

    Thank you in advance.
