I have a system with MS SQL Server 2005 installed and am running the MS SQL Server Management Studio Express but when I query the database version it comes back as SQL 2000 - 8.00.194. How do it change to using SQL 2005?

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

If when you query the server it says that it’s SQL 2000, then you haven’t installed the database server, only the client tools.

You will need to install the database server component on the SQL Server backend and upgrade the instance of SQL Server.
