Access Data Projects and SQL Server 2000

It's clear that Microsoft envisions the future of Access as a general-purpose development tool for creating SQL Server-based applications. The inclusion of SQL Server 7.0 Data Engine (MSDE 1.0) with Access 2000 and the upgraded SQL Server 2000 Desktop Engine (MSDE 2000) supplied with Access 2002 provide the benefits of a robust client/server relational database management system (RDBMS) without per-user license fees.

Note

To build brand loyalty for SQL Server, Microsoft uses the generic term SQL Server 2000, which comes in six flavors, in much of the Access online documentation. This book uses MSDE 2000 to refer to the SQL Server 2000 Desktop Engine and MSDE alone when referring to features provided by MSDE 1.0 and MSDE 2000. The term SQL Server 2000, in this book, refers to features, such as T-SQL, that are common to all editions of the product.
