There comes a time in every programmers life when your voice drops a pitch, hairs sprout in the most unexpected of places and you realise the need to move onto a bigger and better database system.

Most of us start off dabbling with Access databases. They're fun, cheap and easy to maintain. But there comes a time I call it The Change when they're just not enough.

You need something more powerful, more expensive, more professional looking. And often, that something is SQL Server.

This four-part series provides quick, no-nonsense, step-by-step instructions for getting started with all editions of SQL Server 7.0. It doesn't delve into its history, it doesn't stop to evaluate whether or not this is actually the database system for you, it doesn't babble.

This guide is for those graduating from Access, needing to start using SQL Server and fast.

It covers all the SQL Server essentials, alongside chunks of relevant Visual Basic and ADO code. From table creation right through to stored procedures, it's all here.

Remember, this guide is designed for printing. Either print each page direct from your browser, or get the friendlier, more compact version by clicking our print link to the right. Unfortunately this guide isn't currently available as one big download.

If you're looking for further help or assistance with problems, try checking out the Books Online application, under SQL Server's entry on the Start menu.

Enough chit-chat, it's time to get serious. The topic is SQL Server, we're wanting just the facts, ma'am... and your time starts... now!
