SQL 2000 (sp4) instance with databases at compatibility level of 65 and 80. Is changing the compatibility level from 65 to 80 actually upgrading the database to 80? What should be done before and after changing the Compatibility level?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

If the database is attached to a SQL 2000 instance then the database has already been upgraded to SQL 2000. Setting the compatibility level from 65 to 80 simply changes the way some commands respond from the way they responded in SQL 6.5 to the way they respond in SQL 2000.

For the most part these changes should be fairly minor, but some statements will respond differently between the two. Check with Books OnLine for a decent list.
