I want to learn SQL SERVER 2000.
First I want to download the software.
I googled "DOWNLOAD FREE SQL SERVER 2000".
and I found this free download MSDE2000A.exe
My question is > is the software above the right one to download?
are DESKTOP ENGINES behaves the same as the SERVER ENGINE?
What I mean is if I learn all the command is DE they are also applicable
to SERVER EDITION.
Can you suggest what is the right installer to use, and the link to free download?
Yes MSDE is the free version of SQL Server (MicroSoft Database Engine). You should seriously consider downloading and installing a more recent version, though (2005 or 2008), both also exist in free versions.
