I have SQL Server 2000 express working with sql 2005 Management studio express. I loaded SQL Server 2005 and the configuration manager shows that it is running. However when I try to create a new database in Management studio express or restore a 2005 backup it doesn't have that option. What do I need to do to let it see that I have 2005 as an option? I am new to SQL Server and my head is spinning. I am using it as a back-end for MS Access. Thanks!
