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

Yes you can connect an application written in Visual Studio 2003 to a SQL Server 2008 database without issue. As long as you have the correct driver installed on the machine you can connect just about anything to SQL Server.

    You could, however, encounter some limitations at design time, and will probably not be able to take advantage of some new features when designing new applications that don't interact with SQL Server programmatically only. I think that even with VS 2005 and 2008, a patch is needed in order to overcome those limitations.

    Will I be able to update the recordsets and the database while using Visual Studio 2003 and SQL Server 2008? Some of the post that I have read have spoke about a patch that I needs to be install. The patch from my understanding is only valid for Visual Studio 2005 and not Visual Studio 2003.

    I think the patch was released for VS 2005 and 2008 only, but you should be able to perform updates and almost any other operation without issues. You might want to make some tests to be sure.
