    Unanswered: sql server 2000 newbie

    Hi Friends,

    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

    Can you suggest what is the right installer to use, and the link to free download?

    Thanks a lot to all of you

    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.

    Have a nice day!

    First and foremost, learn Transact SQL (Sequel), which is the language of the database and all operations for performing data manipulation and data definition operations.
