  • SQL Server Question

    Hi folks, i'm trying to find an open source app that can accomplish things done by the full version of MS SQL Server. I have a SQL server running on my local machine and need to get access to the data in it. I know nothing about SQL Server or even SQL. So i'm sorry if this question seems silly. Any help in even understanding what i am trying to do would be greatly appriciated.

    Are you looking for a SQL client?

    squirrel-sql on sourceforge

    Or a free database server?

      I think i have a SQL Client. Squirrel, and i have a SQL server running locally, i think it is called MSDE or something. I just dont know how to get the SQl Client to talk to the server.

        Cool, I'd never heard of Squirrel. YA, there's a link to their tutorial in the Overview section here:

            You just need to setup the driver in squirrel, you should already have the Microsoft MSSQL Server JDBC Driver selection, use it and create an 'alias'; point to your local copy of sql server (you can probably use 127.0.0.1 for the name) and add in your username and password. Should be pretty straightforward after that.

              Alright thanks, it turns out that i had Access to a copy of SQL Server 2000 Standard Edition. That did what i needed it to do. Thanks for your help anyway.
