Re: SQL service packet

i am assuming by packet you mean service pack. (stretch?)

if iam correct then you can find this info
for 7.0
To determine which Service Pack level your SQL Server is currently running, execute the following statement from a Query Analyzer window:
You can determine what version SQL Server is running by running
Select @@version

@@Version is a system level variable that holds the current version. On my computer this returns

Microsoft SQL Server 2000 - 8.00.384 (Intel X86)
May 23 2001 00:02:52
Copyright (c) 1988-2000 Microsoft Corporation
Standard Edition on Windows NT 5.0 (Build 2195: Service Pack 2)
The main version number is 8.00.384 which corresponds to SQL Server 2000 SP1. See below for a complete list of versions. It will also tell us the version of the operating system we're running. In this case I'm running Windows 2000 (aka NT 5.0) Service Pack 2. You can find this same information in Enterprise Manager by right clicking on a server and choosing Properties. The version information is displayed in the General tab.

This information is pulled from the system extended procedure xp_msver. You can call this stored procedure like

exec master..xp_msver
and it returns

This is quite a bit of additional information. There really isn't anything exiciting in here that I can find but it's there if you need it.

Re: SQL service packet

John, you wrote "To determine which Service Pack level your SQL Server is currently running, execute the following statement from a Query Analyzer window: "

What is a Query Analyzer Window? and how do I open it?

Re: SQL service packet

start>programs>Microsoft SQL Server>Query Analyzer


Select @@version

into the window and click the execute arrow

then reference the above chart to determine the SP level

Alternatively, the easy way would be

start>programs>Microsoft SQL Server>Enterprise manager

right click server>properties (2000 only i think)
