Determine the Microsoft SQL Server Edition

To determine the Microsoft SQL Server Edition that is currently running on your machine, execute the following query from either ISQL_w or Query Analyzer:

  1. Click Start > Programs > Microsoft SQL Server.

  2. Run Query Analyzer.

    Note: ISQL w is for version 6.5 of SQL and this doc is for 7.0 or later.

    select @@version

    This command returns results similar to the following:
