    Many thanks for your post.

    SQL Search's supported database versions are SQL 2005 and SQL 2008.

    I am afraid it does not support SQL 2000.

    Kindly let us know if you have any other issues or questions regarding the product,I'll like to help.

  • Just to follow up on that a bit further: the reason SQL Search doesn't support SQL Server 2000 is that the way metadata is stored changed significantly between 2000 and 2005.

    SQL Server 2000 used real tables dbo.sysobjects, dbo.syscolumns and friends, whereas 2005 and later uses the views sys.objects, sys.columns (and many others) which have a rather different schema.

    It'd therefore be a significant amount of work to populate SQL Search's internal object model from the 2000-style tables.

    Many thanks,
