SUMMARY

Advanced: Requires expert coding, interoperability, and multiuser skills.

Using the SQL Server ODBC driver with Microsoft Access requires that you run the INSTCAT.SQL file on the ODBC installation disks. This article describes the SQL stored procedure that you can use to query for the version number of the INSTCAT.SQL file that was run against the SQL Server computer.

MORE INFORMATION

The following syntax can be executed in a pass-through query in Microsoft Access 2.0, 7.0 and 97 as well as in the Query window of SQL Server Administration Facility (SAF) for MS-DOS, OS/2, Microsoft Windows or any other operating system in which you can execute a stored procedure:

   sp_server_info 500
                


The attribute_value field of the returned row contains the version number. If an empty recordset is returned, it is likely that the INSTCAT.SQL file was not run on the server. The result will resemble the following:

   attribute_id   attribute_name      attribute_value
   --------------------------------------------------
   500            SYS_SPROC_VERSION   01.00.2101
