    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.
