Testing Compatibility Between SQL Server Versions

Testing Compatibility Between SQL Server Versions

When migrating SQL code (stored procedures, triggers, etc.) to newer versions, it’s not uncommon to have to rewrite your entire back-end code. However, a simpler solution is to check the exisiting code’s compatibility with the newer versions.

To do this, use the following SQL command:

Syntax : sp_dbcmptlevel [databasename], NewLevel

For instance, you would run the following code to test to test the SQL snippet in 6.5:

sp_dbcmptlevel testdb, 65

And you’d run this code to test it in SQL Server 2000:

sp_dbcmptlevel testdb, 80
