    Hello Experts,

    I appreciate this is not a SQL discussion group, but I always have the best
    answers from here. So I thought I could try it here again. :)

    I have installed SQL Server 2005 in my local machine for testing and I
    expected to be presented with some kind of user interface where I could
    manage my tables etc.

    So I my questions is:
    Can anybody explain me (in plain English please) the following?
    What’s SQL Server 2005 for?
    What’s the purpose of installing SQL Server in a machine (or server) if,
    apparently, doesn’t change anything. I say this because I have always been
    able to write SQL queries in Access and it works OK (without the SQL Server
    2005 installed).
    How can I use its unknown, (for me), potential?
    Would you have any website that I can research about better these concepts
    of SQL?

    Many Thanks
    Fabio

    SQL Server is a database. It stores the data.

    Access is a both database and a development environment. You can create
    forms and reports in Access: you can't in a database. The forms and reports
    you create in Access can be used against tables in an Access database
    (really a Jet database), or against databases from other DBMS, including SQL
    Server.

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
