i ran select @@version on a client database and came back with :
Microsoft SQL Server  2000 - 8.00.2189 (Intel X86)   Mar 15 2006 07:10:14   Copyright (c) 1988-2003 Microsoft Corporation  Enterprise Edition on Windows NT 5.2 (Build 3790: Service Pack 1)

-- I looked here for service packs:
I dont see a SP for 8.00.2189.

What SP is that?

for some reason, i thought the @@version result should give the SP. Thanks, that command gave me the service pack.

What's that number?
