what are the diferent versions of sql server

Answer Wiki

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

The current version of SQL Server is SQL Server 2005. SQL Server 2008 will be coming out later this year.

The prior versions are:
SQL Server 2000
SQL Server 7
SQL Server 6.5
SQL Server 6.0
SQL Server 5.0
SQL Server 4.2
SQL Server 4.0
(There are more, but this is about 15-20 years worth of history.)

The most common versions to see in production today are SQL Server 7-2005. Pretty much nothing older than SQL 6.5 is still in use.

There are also several editions of each version. They are:
Express Edition – SQL 2000 and greater (called MSDE for SQL 2000)
Workgroup Edition – SQL 2000 and greater
Standard Edition – Since at least SQL 6.5
Enterprise Edition – Since at least SQL 6.5

    That is assuming you are discussing Microsoft SQL Server (which is probably the case). There are other publishers as well: Gupta SQL Server is still around, as is MySQL (open source) to name but two; there are others...
