    Default Beginner?

    This is my assumption. If so, the SQL Server and Visual Basic book from Wrox is a great book to get you started. It does have some SQL Server administration but it&#039;s not really geared to advanced DBA&#039;s. Mostly towards how a developer would need to setup a database.

    Default RE: Beginner?

    More intermediate. I&#039;ve been doing the basics for a while, mostly accessing databases through ASP, doing Insert, Update, Delete, etc. But I&#039;d like to get a little deeper into the technical stuff.

    Default Well...That book...

    ...does do a decent job showing ADO in use with various stored procedure techniques. Is there something specific you are looking for?<BR><BR>I&#039;ve actually found the help in the SQL Server Enterprise manager to be very useful in comparison to most books.<BR>EggHeadCafe.com has some more advanced admin examples as a start.<BR>sqlmag.com is also good.

    I&#039;ve bought a 4 book set from Osbourne/McGraw Hill and have found them very useful. They&#039;re titled: SQL Server 2000:Developer&#039;s Guide, SQL Server 2000:Complete Reference, SQL Server:Web Application Developer&#039;s Guide and SQL Server 2000: Stored Procedures (there&#039;s a 5th one called Adminstration I believe). I have read through about 50% of them and found a lot of good techniques and tips.
