Greetings,

I have a laptop running Home, I am not ready to make the jump to VS 2005, and I need a database to connect to an SQL database running on a Windows 2000 machine.

Can I install SQLExpress 2005 and get it to work with VS 2003?  

Otherwise, what's the next older version of SQLExpress?  2000?

Thanks,
Bob
