    Question Unanswered: Sql 2008 and compatibility level 80

    Is there any technical reason why an application certified on sql 2000 should not work properly on sql 2k8 with cmpty level 80? In other words would there be any possible data or functionality losses in attaching a 2000 db to a 2008 server and keeping the 80 level?
    Thank you

    There is nothing directly connected with database compatibility level, but there could be potential problems due to the stricter security that is standard in SQL 2008 compared to the relatively trusting assumptions of SQL 2000. In other words, you won't lose any functionality when you move from SQL 2000 to SQL 2008, but you could still have applications that use unsecure features of SQL 2000 come to a screeching halt when that application encouters the default security of SQL 2008.

    In theory, theory and practice are identical. In practice, theory and practice are unrelated.

    As well as comments already raised, particuarly BUILTIN\Admin, you can look at the Upgrade Advisor.
