    Do I need instal Service Pack 3 for SQL Server 2000 for development? I develop some application on SQL Server 2000 and I need import XML file(s) to table. Thanks , Lubo

    I don't think you need to install SP 3 in order to import XML files.

    However, it is generally not the worst idea, to stay almost current with SP's as they offer bug-fixes, and sometimes new and/or improved functionality. The most current one is SP4, btw.

    No you don't need sp 3 for the XML developments. But there are bugs which are fixed from sp3. so better to install it

    not at all,
    just click the setup file .
    but as a precautions take backups of your databases. but I have installed the sp without backing up databases many times(May not be a godd practice)

    Frank , I did it... The result message of this action in window of Query Analyzer is


    Microsoft SQL Server 2000 - 8.00.760 (Intel X86) Dec 17 2002 14:22:05
    Copyright (c) 1988-2003 Microsoft Corporation Desktop Engine on Windows NT 5.1 (Build 2600: Service Pack 1)


    When I clicked to your linkhttp://www.sqlsecurity.com/DesktopDefault.aspx?tabid=37
    I saw many results.

    One of them is 8.00.760 > 2000 SP3/SP3a .... It means I was successful ?
